Hi Kris,

I'm a student, and I do have a very part time job programming things other
than linux audio, but that's not necessarily the career I'm going into. Any
audio programming I do is entirely in my own time for my enjoyment and the
enjoyment of others.  Essentially it boils down to "I want X.  What?  It
doesn't exist yet?  Well let's see if I can create it."  The reason I became
involved in linux audio development is because I like making music with
linux, and also, DSP algorithms are *cool*.
