About the book author:

Mark The Red Harlan was born in Rawlins, Wyoming, and has lived exactly the life you'd expect as a result. Armed with a degree in applied mathematics (from a university he loathes so much that he refuses to even utter the name), he fell headlong into a 20-year stint in the Silicon Valley's computer industry. Red's professional experience includes human interface work at Apple Computer, development of the bidding schema used by eBay, overseeing application development at Danger (makers of the T-Mobile Sidekick), as well as co-founding CyberArts Licensing (suppliers of the poker software seen on the MANSION and GamesGrid sites).
