Edward Finkler
Dead Agent, FictiveKin

With his 15 years of passionate web development experience and open source advocacy, Ed Finkler loves empowering people through technology. He’s excited about creating things and sharing them with the world.

He served as web lead and security researcher at The Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS) at Purdue University for 9 years. More recently, he has been helping startup teams build exciting e-commerce, social sharing, and mapping systems. He’s a proud member of the FictiveKin team, working on Gimme Bar and other swanky web applications.

Ed spends much of his free time creating and working on open source projects such as Spaz, a long-running, award winning microblogging client. Built on open technologies like JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS, Spaz continues to be the choice of thousands of users who value transparency, flexibility, and strong UX. Ed also created the PHPSecInfo auditing tool and the Inspekt input filtering library for PHP.
