author of Chart2D is Jason Simas. Jason is currently a doctorate student
under fellowship at the Computer Science Department of the
Pennsylvania. Jason began writing Chart2D under employment by California
State University, Fresno. CSUF agreed to grant Jason ownership
of Chart2D if he were to license it under the LGPL, which he did. In the
spring of 2002, Siperian
Corporation employed Jason under a $9,000 contract to customize and
extend Chart2D for their purposes. Siperian agreed to grant Jason
permission to incorporate the improvements made, back into
Chart2D. An interesting side-point is that Jason has no interest
in graphics or visualization, but has donated his efforts to this
project mostly because it's a shame to see good code go to waist. More information on Jason apart from Chart2D can be found here.
