Ivan Krstić to Keynote T2´08!

We are very proud to announce that Ivan Krstić will be delivering the keynote for T2’08!

Ivan Krstić is a software architect and researcher currently on leave from Harvard University. Until recently, he worked as director of security architecture at One Laptop per Child, an education non-profit that aimed to produce a $100 laptop for children in the developing world. Prior to that, Ivan served as director of research at the medical informatics laboratory of a European children’s hospital, tackling infrastructure and security problems in wide-scale digital healthcare.

Ivan is deeply involved in open-source and free software, co-authored the best-selling Official Ubuntu Linux Book, and specializes in architecture and security of large distributed systems. He has consulted on both matters for some of the largest websites on the Internet. Described by Wired magazine as a “security guru”, in 2007 the MIT Technology Review named him one of the world’s top innovators under the age of 35 for his work on the OLPC security platform, Bitfrost. Recently, eWEEK declared him one of the top three most influential people in modern computer security, and one of the top 100 in all of IT.
