About the Author

Vicki Sauter received her Ph.D. in systems engineering at Northwestern University, and has been a Professor of Information Systems at University of Missouri - St. Louis for over 35 years. She is a baby boomer with over 40 years of experience using and programming computers; this is her area of research and she has published many academic papers and two books (John Wiley publisher). Sauter was an early adopter of Internet-based tools. For example, she initially used email via BITnet (a predecessor to the Internet) in the 1980s. Her first attempts to put information on the Internet used Gopher, the predecessor to today's browsers. She chaired her university's committee to create its first web presence, and has been active in developing and using the web to share information since then (see http://www.umsl.edu/~sauterv). Sauter's first purchase online was in 1997, and she has used Facebook since 2005. Said differently, Vicki Sauter has been using, researching, and teaching the tools since they were invented, and so she has a great deal of experience to share about the why and how to use the Internet effectively and safely. Over the years she has shared what she has learned by teaching classes at levels from youth to seniors, and has acted as an "Internet evangelist" to help small businesses and not-for-profit organizations get the benefits of what they need from the Internet.

Vicki Sauter lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband. They have one grown son. When she is not at the computer, she collects photos of street lamps, studies genealogy, and needlepoints.
