john c o'keefe:  founder/architect.  john also writes under the name of his alter ego "punk monkey."

heather cardiel:  chief editor/creative voice - while heather is not new to the team, she will be joining us officially in june 2005 and has started to edit all new articles on ginkworld.  heather's talent and her ability to "see" the need for changes make her a great and needed addition to the team; she works best when john actually gives her his stuff to edit.
