Mark Stevens is a software engineer and self-confessed technology addict. Mark started in the computer industry in the 1980s and at the age of 16 wrote a disk operating system for a then state of the art 8-bit microprocessor (despite the fact the machine already had one). He did it for fun and has been hooked on IT ever since then. Mark currently writes line of business applications for Win32, ASP.NET, and Silverlight platforms. He has recently taken up microelectronics as a hobby and has since discovered that his wife does not like the smell of solder. Marks' current exploits, thoughts, and contact information can be found on his blog.
