About the Author

Michael A. Banks has written more than forty books, including the bestseller Crosley: Two Brothers and a Business Empire that Transformed the Nation. Online since 1979, he wrote some of the first hands-on guides introducing people to the online world and such services as CompuServe, AOL, and Prodigy, as well as the pre-Web Internet. He has also chronicled online activities for Windows magazine, Computer Shopper, PCMagazine, PC World, BYTE, and other publications.

An enthusiastic blogger, Banks has participated in online communities for more than a quarter-century. He sees blogging as the cottage industry of the 21st century, and foresees a variety of new Internet-based business categories changing the shape of business over the next decade.
