UGU: Unix Guru Universe - Eric Allman - Home : Unix Contributors
Eric Allman

Contribution

Eric Allman (born 1959) is a computer programmer. The openly gay programmer developed sendmail and its precursor delivermail in the late 1970s and early 1980s at UC Berkeley. If anyone can be called the "father of modern Internet e-mail," it has to be Allman.

Quote

"There is some sort of perverse pleasure in knowing that it's basically impossible to send a piece of hate mail through the Internet without its being touched by a gay program. That's kind of funny."
