I believe that personally accessible technology is the foundation of humanity’s future. To that end I teach people to understand and safely use personal computers and related technology so that they can do more, be more, grow more and connect more than ever before, and be an active participant in that future. I do that by answering questions, educating on important topics and trends, and sharing my overall passion and excitement for the possibilities.

Hello, all,

As Lauren knows this is a topic near and dear to me and my audience. (Skews into the AARP / over 50 crowd).

My biggest question is simply this: what can we DO to fix this? Public shaming doesn't seem to be adequate, and yet I don't know how to truly influence current design trends, or how to best advocate for more accessible alternatives.

The end of an era. I share some of my thoughts on Steve Ballmer's impending departure from Microsoft, and why it's the right thing and the right time to shake things up.

Perhaps most importantly, stop believing it.

People are often concerned that if you're doing daily or periodic backups they'll just keep accumulating until you run out of space, or you have to keep buying more and more hard disks. Not so. The backup software can usually manage it for you.

Probably? Whenever we’re using an online service, such as online backup, we’re actually trusting that they’re doing what they say they do: keep our information secure.

Outlook doesn’t keep its own time. Outlook uses the system time. The real issue here is understanding where the "time" comes from when you receive an email.
