I’ve worked in the computer industry for around 25 years now. I’ve been a computer tech, network administrator, trainer, and freelance consultant. I’ve also spent the last 14 or so years writing, including a whole bunch of computer-related books, articles, white papers, marketing papers, online technical resources, presentations, user documentation, and courseware. I’ve also done design and layout on a number of pieces, including the Microsoft Security Guide for Small Business and Bill Gates’ keynote speech on Compute Cluster Server 2003.
For a couple of years, I worked full-time as a community editor and writer for Lifehacker, a more-than-fantastic site about software, productivity, and all manner of other fun things. I still write for them on occasion. I’ve done some really fun pieces over there, like:
- Beyond the Basics: Six Tips for Better Formatting in Microsoft Word
- The Best Tools Hidden in Windows’ Command Line
- Seven Things I Wish I Knew When I Was Still in College
- How to Talk to Your Kids About Drugs
- Be a Better Patient: What Your Doctor Recommends When You Visit
and a whole lot more. So be sure to check out the site. You won’t be disappointed.
