Bob Kaehms


Bob Kaehms has spent most of his professional career working with computers. After a prolonged youth that he stretched into his late 20s as a professional scuba diver, ski patroller, and lifeguard, he went to work as a scientific programmer for Lockheed Missiles and Space Co. Frustrations with the lack of information-sharing within the defense industry led him first to groupware and then to the web.

Bob helped found the Internet Archive, where as Director of Computing he was responsible for the first full backup of all publicly available data on the Internet. Bob also served as Editor in Chief of Web Techniques Magazine, the leading technical magazine for web developers. He is presently CTO at Media Net Link, Inc. Bob has a degree in applied mathematics, and he uses that training to study the chaos that exists around his house.
