Paul holds a Masters of Science degree in Network Security and a Bachelor’s in Information Systems. He has co-authored two Linux security books, contributed to multiple Linux/Unix books, and has been the technical editor for over 10 best selling Linux and Unix books. Paul also ran a successful Linux portal site during the dot com era and has been an avid Unix/Linux user and administrator both professionally and as a hobby for many years. Joe Merlino (Boston, MA) is an experienced system administrator with Unix and Linux for more than a decade. Craig Zimmerman (New York, NY) manages UNIX, Macintosh, and Windows systems for Spontaneous, a post-production company in New York City. He previously worked at Chiat/Day helping build the world’s most famous virtual advertising agency, managing and networking Unix and Macintosh systems in multiple offices. Jeremy C. Reed (Marysville, WA) is a programmer, a member of NetBSD, and has actively taught FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD administration classes for the past three years. Paul Weinstein (Chicago, IL) has worked on various Unix-based computing platforms, from the mainframe (Harris HCX-9) to the desktop (Powerbook G4) and has developed applications on just about all of the current major branches of Unix in the course of the past 10 years. Recently he has been focusing a lot of his attention on developing and integrating Web-based systems using tools such as Linux, Apache, MySQL, and Perl, and in doing so has brought his unique understanding to a wide range of computing environments ranging from public elementary schools to pioneering open source companies. Currently, Paul works as President and Chief Consultant for the computer consulting firm Kepler Solutions, Inc. David Mercer (Cape Town, South Africa) is a long-time Unix user and PHP programmer who contributed to Beginning PHP4 and Beginning PHP5. He has maintained a keen interest in all things open source ever since he managed to put together a working Beowulf cluster by nicking old computer parts from colleagues and assembling them under his desk.
