I was a member of the ANSI X3H2 Database Standards Committee from 1987 to 1997 and helped write the ANSI/ISO SQL-89 and SQL-92 Standards. I have nine books and have written over 1200 columns in the computer trade and academic press, mostly dealing with data and databases.
I live in Austin,TX. When I am not writing, I am consulting, speaking at conferences, teaching SQL training classes anywhere on Earth or beating up newbies in SQL Newsgroups.
The rumor that I own only one black suit that I have worn for 30 years is false; I own six identical black suits that I have worn for 30 years.
