We Are Austin Tech: Damon Clinkscales

Today on WAAT we caught up with Damon Clinkscales, Web engineer at VitalSource building an e-textbook platform. Damon talks with us about founding Austin on Rails back in 2005. He also talks about the various tech communities in Austin and where you should get plugged in right away. Damon also hosts @cafebedouins a weekly tuesday night hack night where people get together and create things. His philosophy on work from home can be shared by many entrepreneurs: “being in an office is overrated, in general.”
He is a self described Shepherd; a lover of ideas and the pursuit of dreams. “I guess I’m a geek.”
