Laurie Ulrich Fuller has been writing about and teachingpeople to use Microsoft Office since the 1980’s. Her teachingcareer goes back to the time before Microsoft Windows – whichmeans she also remembers the first time she taught people to use aWindows-based application, and a student picked up the mouse andaimed it at the computer screen as though using a TV remote. Nobodylaughed (except Laurie, after class), because everyone was new tothe mouse back then. As new as the mouse was, so was the idea ofkeeping a database on a computer that could fit on your desk— and Laurie’s been there through every new version ofAccess — as Office has evolved to meet the needs of usersfrom all walks of life — from individuals to hugecorporations, from growing business to non-profitorganizations.
Since those early days of Office and Windows, Laurie has personallytrained more than 10,000 people to make better, more creativeuse of their computers, has written and co-written more than 25nationally-published books on computers and software —including several titles on Microsoft Office. In the last fewyears, she’s also created two video training courses —one on Word 2003, and the other on the entire Office 2003 suite.She runs her own company, Limehat & Company, offering training,educational materials, and web development services.
