Dr. Gordon Russell is a Computing lecturer in Napier University, Scotland. He teaches databases, Linux, and networking. He also builds educational websites, concentrating on technology-driven online learning environments. These include db.grussell.org, whose claim-to-fame is its automatic checking of SQL assessments, and linuxzoo.net, which offers online users root free access to Linux servers. But without database technology to support these sites, even he would be lost.
