Meet the Author

Mark Justice Hinton eschewed computers in high school and college, delaying the inevitable. After burning out of the restaurant business, he got a job as a file clerk from a friend in a notorious investment company. In short order, he moved from divining the mysterious service bureau output to preparing the company for an in-house minicomputer, the IBM System/34, a box the size of 10 big PCs and the power of none of them. After two years as the Data Processing Manager of the National Symphony Orchestra (with an office in a broom closet way backstage in the Kennedy Center), Hinton followed his heart to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and founded PC Training and Consulting in 1984. Along with work for diverse clients, Hinton has taught computer classes for the University of New Mexico Division of Continuing Education since 1988. He has taught thousands of students in classes from DOS to Web design.
