I had to put a portion of David’s bio here as well. It is pretty unbelievable!
Born and raised in Silicon Valley, David Geilhufe has been a Senior Program Officer with the Beaumont Foundation of America
responsible for a $10m grant portfolio of more than 200 sites, a Senior
Product Manager for the Accel Partners-funded enterprise software
start-up DigiGroups, and the founder and Director of the Eastmont
Computing Center in Oakland, CA.
David was also instrumental in the
development and launch of the KatrinaList.net, which connected loved ones with missing persons in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
started his career in International Development in Africa and Russia
working for USAID, the World Bank and the OECD. He holds a Masters in
International Development and Applied Economics from American
University and a Bachelors from the University of California, Santa
David is also the person who pointed me towards the People Finder Interchange Format. With Katrina evacuees in Houston, we *needed* some RSS format for people and this looks like a good fit! For more on PFIF, view the PFIF specification docs here.
