Shawn Delahunty

Shawn Delahunty, Contributing Editor
Location: Houston, Texas, USA
E-mail: shawn@armchairarcade.com

About: Mr. Delahunty is a software engineer and embedded systems designer who absolutely loves technology, but enjoys masquerading as a grumpy Luddite techno-phobe to emphasize that technology should serve mankind--not the other way around. Shawn has played, studied, and written computer games since his youth--the "sepia-tinted" early days of home computing, when Space Invaders was state-of-the-art. In that time he's acquired an unusual and exceptionally diverse technical background; as a missile/electronics tech for the US Air Force, an engineering QA manager, lead software engineer at a start-up, and as a NASA engineering contractor. Besides contributing programming- and game-related content, Shawn adds his off-kilter humor and "Extra Medium" technical flavor to his editorial work on Armchair Arcade.
