OK, my turn.
I have been working in Internet stuff since 1996 as network engineer.
First working with dial-up, then LAN environments and finally with BGP. I also
worked in the deployment of the Internet2 network in Mexico back in 1999. Up to
2005 I worked in enterprise environments playing with security, VoIP, wireless
LAN, BGP and other routing protocols. In the last few years I been researching
Internet security with some flavours of machine learning. Today I am now
working for LACNIC as CTO and I am one of the representatives from the NRO.
The most updated info about me in Linkedin (I used to have a webpage
but I haven't updated it)
And you can follow me on twitter too:
