John Ousterhout by Peter Adams.

John Ousterhout is a professor of computer science at Stanford University and the designer of the tcl programming language and the TK toolkit. The tcl language allows developers using Unix-like systems to rapidly build software programs that have graphical user interfaces. A long-time sufferer of repetitive strain injury, Ousterhaut uses speech-to-text dictation software instead of keyboard typing for the majority of his computer work, including programming.
