I like to play with things. I like to make things. I like to read and write things. I’m interested in how things interact with other things. I make and listen to music. I believe in the pursuit of happiness.
My name is George Louthan; I’m a maker, hacker, computer geek. I’ve a recently minted MS in computer science from the University of Tulsa’s Institute for Information Security. My academic research interests have touched information security, network security, natural user interfaces, and formal methods. Now I’m doing contract web development and working with the Oklahoma Innovation Institute to bring a community supercomputer to the Tulsa area.
I’ve built a network monitor, the beginnings of a multitouch coffee table, a kegerator, and I’ve worked on projects for vulnerability analysis, evading government Internet censorship (PDF), managing civillian disaster response, and recommending where to eat lunch.
