Doug MacEachern has been addicted to Perl and web servers since
early 1994 when he was introduced to Plexus as a student employee at the
University of Arizona. Soon after returning to his home town of Boston,
Massachusetts, and entering the "real world," he discovered the Apache
web server, and since early 1996, he has been gluing Perl into all

other technologies with the Web, including DCE, Kerberos, and GSSAPI,
but Perl has been the only one he cannot let go of.
Doug has continued as a developer disguised as a consultant since the
start of 1998, spending most of his time between Auckland, New Zealand,
and San Francisco, California, with time at home in Boston during the
Doug likes to spend his time away from software--far, far away, sailing
on the ocean, diving below it, or simply looking at it from a warm, sandy
beach where technology doesn't go much beyond thatched huts and blenders.
