Jon is a huge believer in finding the right tool for job, and as such is a big proponent of robust open source technologies. In his spare time, Jon designs and builds mobile games, runs, rides his bikes, and falls over on snowboards. Given a 25th hour in the day, Jon would write another unit test (or 10).
