Michiel de Jong, Founder & Lead Developer, Unhosted.org – Michiel de Jong studied Computer Science at Leiden University before working as a researcher and web technology engineer in several European countries. Last year he took a three month sabbatical on tropical island Bali, to work on a hobby project. The result became known as the Unhosted project and quickly gained a lot of momentum in the free software community. This way, what started as a programming holiday, turned into a full-time occupation for him.
