The People Behind KDE: Eric Laffoon

This week we stay in the USA and travel to the west coast,
to Hillsboro, Oregon, hometown of Eric Laffoon. We all know Eric Laffoon as the Quanta+ Team Leader.
In this interview we get to see a glimpse of the more private site of Eric. He's a multitasker, gets excited by catnip, describes himself as a 'wild and crazy guy', is best known for his good cigars and still looks good in spandex ;-)

The results take the Quanta/kdewebdev project leader from childhood tech memories to what's new in Quanta and points between.
