Josh Andler (ScislaC)

Josh Andler is a super friendly dude and all around nice guy. He has been involved with Inkscape for many years because it keeps him sane and he thinks he's somehow bettering the world. He's served a few years as a board member and the primary Google Summer of Code Administrator for Inkscape. He has no fancy degrees, doesn't program much, and doesn't work for a multinational corporation. Again, he's a nice guy, so he's got that going for him.
