About Daniel Drew Turner
Daniel Drew Turner thought Emacs was his only option for writing English papers in college. This is not because he was so technically proficient, but because he didn't know any better. Despite that shortcoming, he has covered technology, business, and social issues for almost a decade for publications as diverse as The New York Times, eWEEK, Salon, Feed, Publish, Lingua Franca, MacAddict, I.D., Nerve, Shift, and more. He turned in the above--mentioned papers at MIT and went on to get a Masters degree in fiction writing while teaching at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Since then, he has practiced creating word processing in the San Francisco Bay Area.
