Gary Gray realized after one too many late night debugging sessions that he enjoyed writing about software more than he did programming it. He switched away from computer science, and graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a degree in technical writing. Since then, he's been an editor of a technical journal, a webmaster, and an engineering technical writer. Currently, he is a technical writer at Curl Corporation, where he is the author of portions of the Developer's Guide as well as the designer and developer of the Surge plug-in's help system. Gary has been awarded both a Chapter Recognition and a Distinguished Chapter Service Award by Boston Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication for his leadership of the Internet Special Interest Group. When he's not working, he enjoys tinkering with (often antiquated) computers, cooking, reading, and designing book covers.
Bruce Mount is the CTO for Cambridge Venture Advisors (www.cvadvisors.com), a consulting firm that helps companies analyze and launch new Internet initiatives. Previously, he co-founded the Fitness Sports Network, was the VP of Technology for Electronic Press, and the Director of Product Development for PLS, an award-winning search engine firm (now part of AOL). In a prior life he spent nine years at NASA Goddard working on the ground software supporting the first 35 space shuttle missions and controlling space-based robots from Earth. Bruce loves elegance in computing and is very excited about the promise that Curl offers developers. You can reach him at BruceMount@aol.com.
