Dean Roddey is a Senior Software Engineer at the Java Technology Centre in Cupertino, CA. He is appalled by the actions of his government's leaders, but his inability to figure out which one of them is the good guy prevents him from straightening the whole thing out at this time. Dean is also the author of the CIDLib Class Libraries, a shareware C++ development system for NT and Visual C++.
Dean was working for IBM Java Technology Centre until 1999. In 2004 he founded Charmed Quark Systems, Ltd.
