About the Author
Suzanne Weixel is a self-employed writer and editor specializing in the technology industry. Her experience with computers began in 1974 when she learned to play football on the Dartmouth time-sharing terminal her brother installed in a spare bedroom. She graduated from Dartmouth College in 1981 with a degree in Art History. In 1984, after a series of jobs which included stints in the advertising department at Inc.

The following year she moved to the editorial department as the New Products Editor. In 1988, Suzanne left ComputerWorld to begin working full time as a freelance writer and editor.
