About the Author

David Bakken is a professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University, as well as chief scientist at GridStat, Inc., Pullman, Washington, USA. His research interests include wide-area distributed computing systems, middleware implementation, and dependable computing. His GridStat data delivery software has influenced the shape of the emerging NASPInet. Since 1999 he has been working closely with electric power researchers to rethink wide-area data delivery in power grids, and is considered the world's leading expert on the subject. He is a frequent visitor and lecturer at utilities, electrical engineering departments, and power meetings worldwide. Dr. Krzysztof (Kris) Iniewski is managing R&D at Redlen Technologies Inc., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a leading manufacturer of high resolution cadmium zinc telluride semiconductor radiation detectors. He is also president of CMOS Emerging Technologies Research Inc., Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, an organization hosting high-tech events on communications, microsystems, optoelectronics, and sensors. A popular speaker and consultant, he has published over 100 research papers, written and edited several books, and held faculty and management positions at University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada; University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada; Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada; and PMC-Sierra Inc., Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
