About Me

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 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 directing the Oklahoma Innovation Institute‘s supercomputing initiative.

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.

I occasionally blog here. I tweet here. This is my Facebook. And if you’re feeling businesslike, this is my somewhat neglected LinkedIn.
