John Buckman founded and ran Lyris [1] in 1994, ran it for 11 years, and wrote their ListManager and MailShield products, both of which use tclhttpd as the web server platform and engine. At Lyris, he hired David Gravereaux to write a "socket" command replacement optimized for Windows' async tcpip calls, which David then made open source, which gives amazing speed gains. John sold Lyris in April of 2005.

John currently uses Tcl extensively behind the scenes at Magnatune [2], an online record label he runs, and BookMooch [3] is an all-Tcl-all-AOLServer used book exchange community he now runs. You can email John : https://magnatune.com/info/email_us?to=john

SEH 20060723 -- I used a track from Magnatune for a student film editing project last year (in accordance with license requirements). Nice to see the founder is a Tcler too. Dude, UR righteous.
