Ben Martin has been working on Filesystem related code for over ten
years. He has a BIT, MIT and PhD in Information Technology with
experience from RDBMS, indexing, filesystems through network and
security. During his PhD he researched how to provide a richer
filesystem search interface using Formal Concept Analysis. FCA allows
the merging of the traditional search and browse interactions into a
single activity.

Ben has written numerous articles about Open Source Software and
presented libferris and other projects at OLS 07, Linux Kongress 05 &
08, LCA 2011, NLUUG 2009, UKUUG 2010, and OSDC 2010 among others.

Proposals for this user

* Libferris: Local data, programs, and the Web are all filesystems

Libferris allows local kernel filesystems, composite files like XML, relational databases and the Web (flickr etc) to be accessed as a virtual filesystem.
