Andy Ihnatko describes himself as “the world’s 42nd most-beloved industry personality” because “it’s vaguely credible but utterly impossible to prove or disprove, and thus precisely the sort of tagline I was looking for.” An unabashed geek (“The bashings ended when I left high school for Rensselaer Polytechnic, thank God”), Andy’s been writing about tech since 1989. In the past, he’s written for every single magazine or website with the word “Mac” in it, highlighted by 10 years as MacUser and then Macworld’s back-page opinion columnist. He’s currently the Chicago Sun-Times’ technology columnist.
In his pursuit of “heroically stupid applications of technology,” Andy has built an animatronic Darth Vader doll that could be controlled over the Internet via telepresence to hassle his roommate’s cats and written and published a complete set of plans and instructions for converting any Classic-style Macintosh into a fully functional 2.5-gallon aquarium. “The Original MacQuarium” was one of the Internet’s first e-Books and can be downloaded from several sites after a quick Google search.
This is Andy’s fourth book. Andy lives in Boston with his two goldfish, Click and Drag. He invites you to visit his aptly named “Colossal Waste Of Bandwidth” at www.andyi.com.
