Among his diverse accomplishments and activities, my good friend and long-time colleague Harris Fogel edits Mac Edition Radio, an online site that ranges well beyond its nominal purview of all things Mac/Apple-related. Having watched and encouraged my evolution over the years into someone nearing geekdom in relation to digital technologies, Harris has persuaded me to start applying myself to tech writing. The idiosyncratic results appear (so far) exclusively at Mac Edition Radio, at the links below (most recent first):

• “AppleCare, the Apple Store, ioSafe Solo, and Time Machine Have My Back.” July 2, 2010.

• “Treating Word 2008 for Mac OS X Like You Own It: A Working Writer Streamlines the New Release.” June 22, 2008.

• “FileMaker Pro 9 and an Open-Source Freeware Solution Make a Perfect Match for a Professional Writer!” February 4, 2008.
