Howard Tayler

He's two guests in one! Howard is both the creator of the on-line comic strip "Schlock Mercenary", and a former Product Manager for Novell, where he was responsible for Novell's collaboration product line.

Howard spent over a decade working for Novell, during which time he did tech support, on-site consulting, technical marketing, and four years of product management. His last efforts at Novell included the successful to push to get GroupWise on Linux, and to embrace Open Source development for iFolder.

He's been cartooning for five years now, and has been doing it full-time since September, giving up his GroupWise fanbase (and Novell paycheck) to pay attention to the tens of thousands of Schlock Mercenary readers world-wide.

Howard has partnered with Steve Jackson Games to bring the Convention Chaos Marble Machine back to Penguicon. This construction project can be viewed as a visual representation of Open Source engineering, or as a dangerous addiction that draws geeks into its tenacious embrace by letting them build something really cool. Yes, when you get to Penguicon, you'll get to play with it too. That's what Open Source means, right?
