I've been at the Wikimedia Foundation since June 2010, and an editor on English Wikipedia since 2001. In past employment, I worked at Linden Lab (makers of Second Life) and before that, at RealNetworks for nine years, where I co-authored/edited the RTSP and SMIL specifications, and later helped Real open source much of its code as "Helix".
As of 2015, I'm focused on systems architecture work, which I plan to write more about on mw:User:RobLa-WMF/Blog. I've been at the Wikimedia Foundation since June 2010, responsible for managing the Platform Engineering most of that time. I use this account (RobLa-WMF) for any editing relating to my job function. When I'm just goofing around, I use RobLa.
