Managed to avoid going broke in Internet Bubble of 2001. Worked as Mac journalist and trainer in my spare time. First commercial Mac OS X app shipped in 2002. My team won the O'Reilly Mac OS X Innovators award in 2003 (for a stop motion animation app) and 2004 (for a way cool Mac slideshow app). Would have won in 2005, too (with an undisclosed app ;-). Did a couple of things I can't really talk about. Google claims to know 18,700 pages about me. Probably nearly all of them are irrelevant.
