Tonya co-founded TidBITS with Adam Engst back in 1990 when publishing on the Internet was either strange or revolutionary, depending on your viewpoint. TidBITS is an electronic newsletter about all things Apple.
Since then, along with performing nearly every imaginable role involved in running TidBITS, she has worked at Cornell University’s academic computer store (selling Macs, PCs, and NeXTs), worked at Microsoft as a technical support person, written and co-written several books, written oodles of articles for the likes of MacWEEK and Macworld, become a parent, edited several books for Peachpit Press, and worked as editor-in-chief for TidBITS’s Take Control series of electronic books through 2017 when the series was sold to alt concepts.
Tonya spends a lot of time thinking about the person behind the personal computer, working to make technical writing easy to understand and use.
Now-a-days, you can read Tonya’s writing in TidBITS and on her personal blog, The Run Is the Reward.
