Dieter Plaetinck is a Belgian engineer living in NYC. Realizing existing metrics solutions didn't cut it while working on complicated backends and infrastructure at Vimeo, he set out to make the experience smoother via projects like the Graph-Explorer metrics dashboard and statsdaemon, a metrics aggregator. He also works on a bunch of other open source projects like anthracite, an event logging app, and uzbl, a minimalist web browser for control freaks. He maintains the metrics 2.0 spec (metrics20.org) and runs a website dedicated to proper use of standardized units and prefixes. He tweets and blogs (sometimes).
