Dan Shoop has been managing systems and networks for over twenty years, initially focusing on large scale systems and high availability clusters. Working on nascent networks in the early '80's that would become today's Internet, his focus naturally shifted along that path. As an internet architect, he's worked both nationally and internationally bringing companies like outdoor retailer Campmor into e-commerce, directing internet technologies for publishing and content providers like Sesame Street, techical consulting for Parade Magazine, and designing, implementing and managing systems and networks for nationwide ISPs, hosting companies, banking and Wall Street. Shoop's work has been covered in the New York Times, by the Harvard Business School, Pollstar, and "The Computer Chronicles." Having fell in love with the Mac in the early '90's as a personal platform he's very pleased that it's now a level player in the server world where his expertise is finding new synergies for Mac users.
