About Bryan Christianson

Bryan Christianson has been a software developer since 1981, although he first learned to program some 10 years earlier while studying Engineering at the University of Auckland, New Zealand

He acquired his first Macintosh computer in 1986 (Mac Plus) and began to learn what it was like to work on a personal computer, all his previous experience having been with Burroughs (now Unisys) mainframe machines.

He became interested in the networking issues associated with computers when the company for whom he was working in the late 1980's deployed a largish (1000+ nodes) private network. This led to attempts to develop ping software for the Mac and sometime later he realized the need for traceroute functionality. Fortunately Apple had included a TCP/IP stack in MacOS 7.5 that was capable of sending raw packets through its network interfaces and so WhatRoute was born.

During the late 1990's and early parts of the new millenium, Bryan worked for an ISP in New Zealand, developing software for the encapsulation of IP packets within MPEG2 frames for transmission via geo-stationary satellites - bringing affordable high speed internet to New Zealand.
