Brett Glass



Glass is the founder of, the world's first WISP – in continuous operation since 1992 – and is still deploying rural broadband to unserved areas in Laramie, Wyo., where the average population density is five people per square mile. He supervises and/or participates in nearly every installation and also hand-builds and programs the servers and routers. During his rather eclectic career, Glass has written portions of the code and/or documentation for such widely varied products as Borland's Pascal "toolboxes" and compilers, Living Videotext's ThinkTank, Cisco Systems routers and terminal servers, Earthstation diskless workstations, and Texas Instruments' TMS380 Token Ring networking chipset. His articles have appeared in nearly every major computer industry publication. When he's not writing, consulting, speaking, or cruising the Web in search of adventure, he may be playing the Ashbory bass, teaching Internet courses for LARIAT (Laramie's community network and Internet users' group), cooking up a storm, or enjoying "extreme"-ly spicy ethnic food. Glass has a B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Case Institute of Technology and an MSEE from Stanford.
