In this age of intense specialization, who says you can't still
succeed as a generalist? Over the span of his ongoing career, Ross Owens
has been a sports editor for a San Jose area newspaper and an executive managing
editor for a national computer trade magazine. He's co-authored four editions
of a best-selling college textbook, published hundreds of movie reviews, edited
countless magazine articles, designed a number of Web sites, and is equally at
home polishing sentences as he is structuring XML documents or writing complex,
object-oriented programming code.
