Mark Minasi

IT Consultant, Author, Speaker


As the author of 43 technical books written in the last 25 years on networks, the software industry, GUI design, PC repair and the Wing Commander game series, Mark Minasi is the author you are most likely to have read without noticing it. Besides his million-selling books and nearly a thousand columns, Mark is a popular teacher and keynote speaker, as his perhaps greatest achievement was his realization 32 years ago that this business doesn't have to be dull, and that the key to getting people to stay awake in tech talks is to just "not suppress the funny." Most of all, Mark never forgets that he's working for you, the overworked folks challenged to keep all this stuff functioning and to keep looking to make it all even better, not for the big vendors.
