    Rusty is a recovering Linux kernel maintainer, and long-time Free Software developer. He helped create the modern Linux kernel module subsystem, iptables, netfilter, lguest, virtio, CCAN, ccontrol, linux.conf.au and many other forgotten projects. After almost 20 years of kernel development, he switched to working on bitcoin 4 years ago: in particular, developing specifications and an implementation of the lightning network. He lives in Adelaide with his three great children, and very understanding wife.

Abstract
