In 1995, Silky single handedly designed the "b.net" protocol for D1. He later added support for SC in 1997, and an expirmental chat interface in early 1998. With the chat gateway he also released GreetBot, a simple C++ project aimed at teaching programmers how to write clients for the new gateway.
Silky-Smooth currently frequents the battle.net forums, specifically under the World of Warcraft sections. It is rumored that he is designing a new network protocol to be used in WOW.
