What's next for

Who is Kevin Scannell?

I am American, originally from Boston but living in St. Louis, Missouri now. For many years I've had a great interest in the Irish language and language technology. I lead the team that created the Irish localizations of Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, and I created the spell checker "GaelSpell", which is available as an add-on from this site (I translated this site too!) Enjoy, and send me a note if you get some benefit from these programs!
