Douglas Crockford – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Douglas Crockford is a senior JavaScript architect at Yahoo! In the 1970s he went to San Francisco State University.

Crockford is well known for his work in introducing JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). He has also worked on the computerization of media at Atari, Lucasfilm, and Paramount. He became something of a cult figure on videogame oriented listservs in the early 1990s after he posted his memoir “The Expurgation of Maniac Mansion” to a videogaming bulletin board; the memoir documented his efforts to censor the computer game Maniac Mansion to Nintendo’s satisfaction so that they could release it as a cartridge, and Crockford’s mounting frustrations as Nintendo’s demands became more obscure and confusing.[1]
