Hi, my name is Obed Fernandez, but everyone calls me Obie. I have been a geek all my life and a serious Java programmer for over 5 years. I thought of an idea similar to MusicBrainz about 3-4 years ago as my MP3 collection started growing in leaps and bounds. I'm hoping to make several key contributions to the project, although I'm not sure exactly what those contributions will be yet. My first step might be to write a Java client for MusicBrainz cause I'm useless with the current Microsoft-based stuff.
