Daniel Quinn ( - Intro to Paperless

After fighting with the process of applying for a UK visa and starting a company here, I wrote Paperless to help deal with the antiquated process of archiving probably-useless-but-just-maybe- useful documents using a simple documents scanner, Django, and a bunch of other handy utilities. The result is a web-based, self-hosted archive for all of your paper stuff. Scan it and shred it, you never need to deal with paper again.

Daniel is a Canadian expat living in London now for only a few months. He formerly worked with the RIPE NCC building Free software tools for the Atlas project, but currently contracts for the UK government with Trade & Investment. He likes Oreos and cheesecake, and oreo cheesecake especially.
