Interhack Expands Technical Staff as Lynn Newton Comes Aboard
Interhack Corporation announced today that Lynn David Newton has joined the firm.
Before joining Interhack, Newton developed and maintained the convention management system at Gen Con in Seattle. Previously, he developed Linux kernel test software for embedded telecommunications hardware for Montavista Software in Tempe, Ariz. and served as the lead developer of the RegPro product at Registration Resources in West Linn, Ore. As a software engineer at Motorola, Newton created Test Case Matrix, an application to standardize test planning, tracking and reporting.

His career in technology began with Four Phase Systems, where he became a software engineer after working as an editor of technical documentation.
Before his career in technology, Newton worked as a professional musician. A classically trained composer, he also plays a variety of instruments, and founded the rock band, “Time,” which later recorded under the name “Think Dog!”
“Lynn's career path demonstrates a feature that we regard highly,” said Interhack founder Matt Curtin, “the ability to cultivate raw talent into a highly-developed skill that is then applied to address challenges in a variety of domains.”
Newton holds a degree from the University of Illinois. He and his wife Suzy are relocating to Columbus. Newton is an avid runner and has competed in many ultra-marathons and marathons.
