Brendan loves cities and technology. His background in transportation engineering and programming gives him a unique ability to solve planning and transportation problems through web-based maps, open data, interactive tools and APIs. He’s been playing with the web for so long he can remember when Netscape was king and the blink tag rocked his world!
Ruth has been hacking and coding since 7th grade. She went to MIT to study computer science, but ended up majoring in city planning. Then she went to UC Berkeley for a masters in city planning, and ended up getting reacquainted with programming. She is proficient in Adobe Creative Suite and more than proficient in the exquisite art of GIS. She loves ramen, maps, VMT, and typography. Above all else, Ruth fights for the user.
Trucy is an engineer, front-end web developer, graphic designer, and project manager who also enjoys baking and teaching people Swedish. Previously, Trucy studied Mechanical Engineering at The University of Iowa and Civil Engineering at UC Berkeley, worked at LBL and most recently attended Hacker School. She can code, design and handle just about anything else thrown at her.
Jed is probably the best Ms. Pacman player you’ll ever meet, and definitely the best Ms. Pacman player ever to have driven the Mexico City subway. At MIT, Jed’ spent his time hosting a popular radio program and writing movie reviews for its student-run newspaper (and picked up a little engineering knowledge along the way). He’s worked as a commercial real estate research analyst for Newmark Knight-Frank, studied city planning and transportation engineering as a graduate student at UC Berkeley, and now works Apple Computer. He is no longer directly involved in BlinkTag’s operations. Jed developed a taste for gambling in his native Big Easy, and tries to sneak trips to Reno whenever possible.
