MyFirstMac: Help For Mac Newbies

by Adam C. Engst

Long-standing publications like TidBITS face the problem of an ever-evolving audience. After all, most of you have been using Macs (and reading TidBITS) for years, and we use that fact when writing to tailor our choice of articles and our assumptions of what you already know. But if you know someone who is just getting started and may not yet be up to reading TidBITS each week, we've run across a new site you can recommend. MyFirstMac [1], created by long-time TidBITS subscriber Chris Kerins, offers crisp, concise articles that are perfectly targeted to the person who is considering a Mac, has just purchased one, or is still getting comfortable. Major sections include Before You Buy, Getting Started, Switching from Windows, Mastering the Mac, News, Your Stories, Q&A, and a series of short "How Do I...?" tutorials. You're unlikely to learn much you didn't already know, but MyFirstMac's content is ideal for your neighbor or elderly relative who's been asking about the Mac. And if you want to contribute, MyFirstMac is looking for pros to answer questions and write articles.
