Nancy Gravley retired from a position in human services after 30 years and is spending her retirement years spreading the joy of the Mac. She teaches beginner skills, writes a blog, and serves as president of a large Mac User Group (MUG) in addition to writing and reviewing products for TMO, penning the Computing with Bifocals. She has three children, three grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. Life is good.
Michael T. Rose claims his first Mac (a 128K original) served him well through high school and its successors (a 512KE, SE, SE/30 and IIsi) were loyal stalwarts during editorial jobs at the Carnegie Mellon college newspaper, followed by a 10-year career in editorial technology at Time Inc. titles Entertainment Weekly & LIFE. Since leaving the print publishing world, Mike has helped manage IT and now works as a creative director for MJM Creative Services, an NYC events and face-to-face marketing agency. He has written for The Unofficial Apple Web Log (TUAW) since November 2006. Mike & his family live in Brooklyn, NY. His personal blog is GeekParent, and you can find him on Twitter.
Steve Sande also writes way too much. He’s the Hardware Editor at TUAW, and recently logged over one million words written for the blog in just over three years. He’s written a number of books for Take Control Books and Apress, is married to a rocket scientist, and spends his days being bossed by a cat. You can watch what he says on Twitter, and see him every Wednesday on TUAW TV Live.
