Douglas Crockford was born in the wilds of Minnesota, but left when he was only six months old because it was just too damn cold. He is best known for having discovered that there are good parts in JavaScript. This was an important and completely unexpected discovery. He also discovered JSON, the world's best loved data interchange format.
