Steve Gibson is the founder & CEO of Gibson Research Corporation, located in Southern California. Since 1988, all of the bills have been paid by the sales of Steve's long-standing mass storage maintenance and data recovery utility: SpinRite. GRC's website mostly reflects Steve's life-long passion for all-things-technology including Internet Security. He began programming early computers in 1970, at the age of 15, and he never stopped. Steve believes in "old School" computing, and, yes, misses working with computers having 16 Kbytes of memory. So today, because he lives to code, even though it's a bit nuts, he still writes all of his programs in 100% pure assembly language. Listeners to his weekly Security Now podcast often comment that they can hear his love and enthusiasm for technology in his voice. It's the real deal.
