By day, Tony Butka is a bureaucrat for Los Angeles County. In his other life he lives in a loft surrounded by computers, printers, and a host of vinyl records. Tony served for several years on SCOUG's board of directors, then took a "break" to lead its General Interest Group, and now he's both GIG leader and SCOUG's president. Oh, and he writes a monthly column on printing and scanning under OS/2 called Ink.
