About the author
Michael Russell (sozzled)
In a nutshell, his career in Information Technology spans over 40 years, nearly all of that working in various Australian Government departments and agencies. For the last 15 years of that time, he’s had a keen interest in developing intranet sites and this naturally evolved into the Internet space. His experience covered most activities in the IT field: systems analysis and design, programming, testing, project management, customer relationship management, knowledge management—you name it and he’s probably had something to do with it (or he managed teams of people who had the subject-matter skills).
He retired from the workforce in January 2007 and, if he thought he was busy when he was working, he’s been busier now than ever—mostly he’s busy having a great time!
When he’s not thinking about world events, Australian politics or making sure he’s not far away from coffee, Michael is involved in helping people make the best use of Joomla. He is currently one of the site administrators of Joomla! Australia.
