Zipper Howard

Few in Boulder can claim to have dropped Ara on the trails around town. Zipper is one of them. You see, he's not your average, run-of-the-mill Boulderite.

Nay, Zipper is a master negotiator, both of mountains and of office politics. This is precisely why, in August of last year, he was promoted from CEO to Ombudsdog.

His mediating skills were immediately put to the test in the highly contentious "bike shorts affair", which (without compromising anyone's anonymity) nearly resulted in Steve's dismissal.

Zipper recently tried to implement a Basic Decorum Policy at dojo4, but it's being met with stiff resistance from the usual suspects.
