Rob here (robi is my Croatian nickname and often computer username) for those in other cultures, short for Robert.
As a Strategic Advisor and (Business & Innovation) Catalyst, I'm mostly a full stack janitor
As a leader in several startups, I reserve a keen eye for emerging technologies (hi Cloudron and it's Apps); I have been a speaker, mentor, advisor for Google, NASA, IBM, and many more, finding safe, creative solutions all the way from the mundane to the complex with equal ease, which is one thing that keeps my passion ignited.
Remember WinAmp? Yeah, I was there during the mp3 revolution, in the credits until the recent reshuffle.
I've invented a bunch of stuff, including the first PCIe flash storage device in small form factor (SFF), now you'll recognize it as the M.2 PCIe SSD device for which there is now a slot on every motherboard being made. (didn't make a dime.)
Made core discoveries (read blunders) in physics (magnetism, light, water), mathematics, statistics, AI, ML, medicine, law, etc, which you can ask me about outside this thread.
3 decades ago I got bitten by the sysadmin bug and never left, despite all the C level gigs.
After 15 years, I am still on the board of directors for https://BayLISA.org which is one of the oldest meetups in Silicon Valley. We've had the Cloudron team speak at one of our meetups which should be online on YT.
I play a long running pickup soccer game every Saturday (same folks come out for 8+ years) and tennis 1-2 times a week if possible. Love ping pong and ultimate frisbee too.

Otherwise a few here have found me on Twitter.
There's more, but that's plenty for now
