Bio: Early in the "Digital Revolution" Doug's recognition of the potential desktop information systems offered set the tone for the next 35 years of his career. In the mid-80s as Business Manager for the Iowa State Daily and using newly available software Doug taught himself how to develop and use relational database systems to enhance access to information and present it in formats useful for decisions making. Later Doug moved to ISU's Department of Zoology and proceeded to bring the new technologies to the department along with one of the first departmental networks offering shared resources and email services. When Internet technologies became available to the public Doug developed an appreciation for the potential that this next generation technology offered to education. Again, teaching himself HTML, Doug embraced the opportunity and made the Department of Zoology amongst the first in the nation to have a web presence.
