About the Editors
Derik DeLong, Senior Contributing Editor, fell in love with the Mac the very first day he got to use a Quadra 660av with a copy of Word 5.1 to write his school papers on. That passion has blossomed into a Mac Pro and a 12″ Powerbook (as well as countless iPods) that inhabit his Tewksbury, Massachusetts home. His cat doesn’t understand it, nor his penchant for softball, the Wii, and good beer, but puts up with it because his software engineering pays for the cat food.
About the Contributors
Aayush Arya, Contributor, finally bought a MacBook Pro a couple of years ago and has now become a convert (read fanboy). He also owns a 24-inch iMac and 16GB iPhone, among other Apple gear. While sitting in a park and mulling over the mysteries of life one fine Sunday morning, it occurred to him that he could totally start writing about Apple (it was the “Newton moment”, if you will). So here he is, working as a blogger for MacUser, columnist on Apple Matters, and Editorial Director for Smoking Apples. He also likes to pen down his thoughts on a blog and on Twitter on occasion. He hopes to bring a new perspective to his posts as he hails from India, one of the most “Mac-deprived” nations in the world, and be a little informative and entertaining as he goes about doing his job.
When not blogging for MacUser, ContributorCyrus
Farivar can be found mainly on the airwaves, reporting on technology
for PRI’s The World and National Public Radio. He can also be
found amidst the pages of The
Economist (although as there are no bylines, you’ll just have to
take his word for it). Otherwise, chances are good that he can be found
chowing down at one of California’s delicious taco
trucks, or working on his forthcoming book, tentatively titled “The
Internet of Elsewhere,” (Rutgers University Press, 2009), an examination
of the history and effects of the Internet in Senegal, South Korea,
Estonia and Iran. He also maintains a personal blog at cyrusfarivar.com.
ContributorThomas Gagnon-van Leeuwen‘s parents mostly kept their trusty Power Mac 7300 away from him until he was 13. He’s been a devout Mac fan ever since. Thomas lives with his family in Montréal, Canada, making him the official Canadian MacUser correspondent™. When he’s not trying–and consistently failing–to have a social life, he writes for MacUser, makes Google lose money by consuming too much YouTube bandwidth, snaps a few photos, occasionally Twitters, and goes outside. What? Of course the last one is true. Sheesh.
Former MacUser bloggers include: Collin Allen, Brian Chen, Pat Nakajima, Dan Pourhadi, and Scott Silverman.
