Stefan Sjogelid

Stefan Sjogelid grew up in the 1980s in Sweden, getting hooked on 8-bit consoles, Amigas, and BBSes. With a background in system and network administration, he packed his bags for Southeast Asia and continued to work in IT for many years, before love and a magic 8 ball told him to seek new opportunities in the North American continent.

The Raspberry Pi is the latest gadget to grab Stefan's attention, and after much tinkering and learning a great deal about the unique properties of the Pi, he launched the PiLFS website (http://www.intestinate.com/pilfs), which teaches readers how to build their own GNU/Linux distribution and applications that are particularly useful on Raspberry Pi.
