Sean Baird (1973-2000) was one of the co-founders of this site and published under the handle sqlguru. Sean started answering questions for Scott on 4GuysFromRolla.com and that grew into SQLTeam.com. He was a very talented DBA and had published numerous books and spoken across the country. Sean was a hot air balloon pilot and great friend to everyone who knew him. He died in an automobile accident on September 24th, 2000 and we all miss him greatly. Sean's pics have moved here.
