Scot is a writer for Oracle. He's a slacker and smartass involved in content engineering, content architecture, big data, cloud computing, and other buzzwords related to technical crap.

Scot is a proud father, so don't ask him about his family unless you have four hours to listen to him blather on about his kids.
Oh yeah: all opinions are his and his alone, blah, blah, blah, random legalese, etc.
