not a legend
.NET Redneck : Eric Sink

Eric Sink enjoys a challenge. He could have chosen to build his company in Silicon Valley or Seattle where all the resources are. Instead, he decided to settle in central Illinois, where every third TV commercial is an advertisement for herbicide.

He's not rich or famous, but apparently a decent software career can be made almost anywhere. Eric managed the browser team at Spyglass, leading the development of the early versions of Internet Explorer for Microsoft. In 1997 he founded SourceGear, a boring but profitable small ISV selling developer tools. His morning commute is six minutes long and involves neither freeways nor stoplights.
