   Roku - embedded Linux music and video boxes

   David Stern

   It's been an exciting year for embedded Linux appliances, and
   Saratoga-based Roku, Inc., started by ReplayTV founder Anthony Wood, is
   one of the brightest rising stars. Roku's lead software engineer David
   Stern will share Roku's Linux story with us. Be sure to bring your
   business card, as Roku will probably have a couple of Roku's signature
   video player boxes to give away in a raffle.

   David Stern is the engineer principally responsible for the software
   embedded in Roku's product line of networked audio and video players,
   which are all Linux-based. Prior to working at Roku, he served stints
   at Netflix, and before that at consumer electronics firms D&M Holdings
   and Openglobe, Inc. He earned his baccalaureate and masters degrees in
   computer science.
