John Kozak

Chief Technologist   imdb
John has worked in many areas of the computer industry for quite some time, mostly designing and implementing systems, but occasionally advising on technical areas and sometimes doing a little journalism. For the MoD he built distributed systems using virtual machines a couple of decades before such things were fashionable. He designed and developed probably the first browser-based financial trading application, inventing what is now called AJAX in the process. Since 1999, his software has run a significant chunk of the UK Gilt IDB market. But he always wanted to get into the movies, so has been designing software for workflow/facility management and effects generation for some years now.
