My name is Artem Kachitchkine2, I'm an engineer in the Operating Platforms Group. Since I joined Sun a few years ago (virtually straight out of college) I've been working on a number of I/O related projects. I started by fixing bugs in Solaris serial and parallel port drivers, then participated in the bringup of the Sun Blade workstation series. After that, I moved into the USB land and later took ownership of the 1394 (FireWire) framework in Solaris, during which I wrote av1394(7D) and scsa1394(7D) drivers and introduced framework extensions to support new drivers. I was also part of the team that ported Solaris Fibre Channel stack aka Leadville to x64 platforms. Lately I've been busy working on various aspects of mass storage and removable media management in Solaris.
Update Oct 2007: After finishing Tamarack and starting WWAN OpenSolaris projects, I joined the networking group and now contributing to Brussels.
1AT&C0 is the Hayes modem command that means "assume data carrier is present". I often feel that way during blogging, i.e. assuming someone is listening.
