Daniel Baker (bull)
I'm a Brit (sorry) located in the Midlands not far from Dominic, I moderate on the forums, keep an eye on the hotspots section at WWC, develop add-ons (when I'm bored), contribute to the source in tiny ways, and hang out on irc (annoying the real devs with bugs and suggestions) and try to keep Chad from scaring away the geekettes.
Mike Ellery (engmike)
I'm a hokie, majoring in electrical engineering. I mostly make hiking related add-ons, and try to help out where ever I can.
Jason Ellison (nosilleg)
Wiki editor and chat participant. I'm spending most of my time trying to organise things so that new people can come along to the wiki and get the information they need without too much mental strain. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Thomas Risan
Anthony Taylor (Llynix)
Are we putting personal bios here or what we do for world wind? Well I am currently the principal maintainer of the installer and webmaster for worldwindcentral. I am also a forum moderator, IRC chatroom founder, and lead complainer. Outside of ww I tutor math for a measily part time living at Vernon College and take care of a loving woman and her wonderful daughter. I am no relation to Dom below.
Dominic Taylor (TheBean)
Forming the Brit contingent along with Daniel, I'm a student about to take a gap year and then study Computer Science & Networks at Plymouth university. Also director of a Bath, UK based IT company. I also run a WW downloads mirror at twobeds.com/nasa, and moderate the forums with Chad and Anthony. In my spare time, when I find it, I scare the neighbours with my piano 'skills' and spy on them via the trampoline.
Chad Zimmerman (Tom Servo)
A yank that keeps the brits under control ;) Mainly do forum moderation and support and support on the IRC channel. I also give the devs ideas for their code because they try NOT to think like a user at most times. I also work on the User Doc and I am also working on developing a World Wind game. On my non-WW time I contract work at General Motors where I do data analysis and reporting for most GM plants world wide (aka help them get numbers to improve throughput). In the real world, I watch turkeys, deer and foxes roam across the back yard and wonder what "vacation" means.
Martin Zoepfl (mazop)
AddOn designing - mostly GIS related themes which i fuse as good as possible with World Wind....
