Timothy Miller is the founder of the Open Graphics Project. He has a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, and has worked since 1996 as a software engineer, developing graphics drivers and application software. In 1999, he started learning chip design on the job, because the kinds of graphics chips that his employer needed couldn't be bought from 3rd parties anymore. He has been designing graphics chips and graphics-related chips ever since. He is currently working on a Ph.D. in Computer Science, specializing in Artificial Intelligence.

When was the Open Graphics Project started, and whose idea was was it?

I guess you might say that the OGP was started in October of 2004, when I made my first post to the Linux Kernel Mailing List about the general idea. I'd had the idea in my head for a while before that, but only then did I get permission from management to start it as a company project. Since then, the project has amicably separated from the company where it started.

How many people were working on it in the beginning?

Full Story.
