About the Authors

Since 1989, Linda Hefferman has been explaining technical stuff to everyday people who use technology but are not exactly best buddies with their computers.

Her first computer manual taught people how to make pretty graphs and charts from project management data using a software program written for the first version of Microsoft Windows. Since then she has written help systems and user manuals on such diverse products as Web stores, Flash-based educational Web sites, and customer management software for cosmetic salespeople.

This is her first title for the For Dummies series, and she's thrilled to combine her passion for writing with her technical skills to do what she loves best: help the average Joe and Jane feel comfortable and confident on computers.

On her first day of college, Asha Dornfest took a bold step: She replaced her broken typewriter with a PC.

Asha didn't consider herself a geek; her computer was simply a tool to help her write papers and reports. But by her senior year, she came to regard her computer with a sense of kinship.

In 1994, Asha discovered the Internet. Soon after, she and her husband Rael started a Web design business in their dining room and began hawking their electronic wares. Mind you, this venture began during the Web-publishing Stone Age, when many people had never even heard of the World Wide Web. Rael quipped that For Dummies books about Web publishing may one day hit the shelves. Asha scoffed.

Rael obviously had more foresight than Asha did; Asha went on to write several books and articles on the topic, including Microsoft FrontPage For Dummies. She now spends an inordinate amount of time online-she's the founder and editor of the popular parenting Weblog Parent Hacks.
