Guido van Rossum - Brief Bio
Here's a brief bio that I send to people who ask me for one. You can also use the photo above (taken in 2002; it links to the original at 1600x1200).
Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, one of the major free scripting languages. He created Python in the early 1990s at CWI in Amsterdam, and is still actively involved in the development of the language.
In 1995 he moved to the US; first to work for CNRI in Reston, VA as a researcher, then for Zope Corporation as Director of PythonLabs, and since 2003, after a move to the SF bay area, for Elemental Security.
His home on the web is http://www.python.org/~guido/.
