Rob “CmdrTaco” is the creator and user #1 of the wildly successful “News For Nerds” web site known as Slashdot.org. For 14 years, he wore pretty much every hat that came along, from programmer, sysadmin, DBA, designer, director, writer, and editor-in-chief. During his tenure he posted over 15,000 stories and rejected probably a million more.
CmdrTaco pioneered advances in social media and community moderation systems long before the rest of the world even knew what they were. He resides near Detroit, MI with his wife and two kids.
