About the Technical Editor
Colin Macdonald’s interest in computers began when he first witnessed the power of VisiCalc running on an Apple II computer, and his interest intensified when he designed the print collateral for the first commercial spell-checking program for personal computers. He began using and teaching most of the Adobe and Macromedia programs from their introduction—including Dreamweaver, when it came with a 146-page manual. He has been a record company art director, university creative director, professor, consultant, and trainer in both North America and Asia.
Colin enjoys sharing his experiences and knowledge with and learning from others. He instituted the first multimedia courses at the University of Hawaiis Department of Communication, where he taught multimedia design and development for over a decade. He is a core faculty member of Pacific New Media, the premier digital and media education center in Hawaii.
When Colin isn’t creating websites, consulting, or training, he enjoys photography, live music, hiking, and traveling to other countries. He calls Honolulu, Hawaii, home and can be found on the Internet at http://www.macbinary.com.
