MC Dug-T is developerWorks' Minister of Science, droppin' the XML, Java, and Web services 411 on the public. In his travels, he gets mad props from his peeps worldwide for the stone-cold, stoopid-fresh style sheets he leaves behind. All his mad-phat nollidge will soon be published by O'Reilly and Associates in the Strictly Non-Fiction book XSLT (ISBN 0596000537, pre-order your copy today at amazon.com) which will then start slayin' soft-sellin' suckas at tha local booksella. Discussing the book in a recent dW interview, he boasted, "I'm gonna empty mah dome into one supa-fly tome."
For relaxation, he likes to put his hands up in the air, and in his words, "wave 'em around like I just don't care." When not chillin' with his worldwide XML krew, he maxes at the crib in Raleigh with his wife, cooking teacher CT-ONE, and their six-year-old shortie, Lily the Flayva Princess.
