Bob began programming in 1977 and has practiced it since (it was always a great way to make money when he was broke). He entered the modern computer age, however, not as a programmer but as a writer. After earning undergraduate degrees in physics and oceanography and a Master’s degree in human communication, Bob got his start in electronic information as a technical writer on contract at Microsoft. Among other projects, he wrote more than half of the MS DOS 5.0 User’s Guide and one of Microsoft’s first all-electronic User’s Guides. From there, he began to develop electronic information systems on local networks, floppy disks, CD-ROMS, and when it was invented, the Web. In pursuit of electronic information and then of content management, he has created scores of applications and three businesses.
