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 three 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, objected-oriented programming code.
