Mike Bronner operates the web development agency GeneaLabs, preferring Apple devices, and follows all Apple announcements with critical interest.

Frank Petrie is an author and contributor to ScreenCastsOnline Magazine.

Jeff Gamet is the Managing Editor for The Mac Observer, and the author of Fresh Brewed Tales, a chronicle of Jeff’s strange adventures at coffee shops. He also is the host of the Daily Observations podcast and co-host of The Apple Context Machine. You can find his regular updates on Twitter.

David Ginsburg is the President of the Suburban Chicago Apple Users Group, and is an IT professional supporting Mac, iOS and Windows users. Find and follow him on Twitter as @daveg65. You can also hear him share his knowledge on his podcast, In Touch With iOS and sharing a love of horse racing on Off The Charts.

Chuck Joiner is a writer, speaker, and tech journalist focusing on Apple products and services, and how they affect our lives. In addition to writing, Chuck has been a speaker, web developer, podcaster, and musician. He founded—one of the Internet’s first Apple-centric news sites—over 22 years ago. He has also written for Macworld, Fast Company, and The Mac Observer, and is a regular panelist on The British Tech Network’s The Mac Show. Chuck’s most recent beat is what he calls Tech vs. Wild—the intersection of high technology and high adventure.

Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is co-host of The Aftershow, makes regular appearances on the Daily Observations Podcast and the British Tech Network and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter.

Frank Petrie has been writing reviews for over 15 years. He is also an avid baboon wrestler.

Michael Potter  is the Executive Producer of For Mac Eyes Only, and the organizer of the annual Macstock Conference and Expo. Mike’s love-affair for all things Apple began in his Junior High’s Library playing Lemonade Stand on a pair of brand new Apple ][+ computers. His penchant for Apple gear continued to be nurtured by the public school system when, in High School, he was hired as a lab supervisor to help run the Apple ][e lab for his fellow students and their Print Shop needs. Then, further still, in college he often opted to help a friend with her Computer Graphics coursework instead of focusing on his own studies, but only because it helped get him closer to the Mac-lab.
