Karli Watson is the technical director of 3form (www.3form.net), as well as a freelance IT specialist, author, developer, and consultant. For the most part, he immerses himself in .NET (in particular C#) and has written numerous books in the field for several publishers. He specializes in communicating complex ideas in a way that is accessible to anyone with a passion to learn, and spends much of his time playing with new technology to find new things to teach people about.
During those (seemingly few) times where he isn’t doing the above, Karli will probably be wishing he was hurtling down a mountain on a snowboard. Or possibly trying to get his novel published. Either way, you’ll know him by his brightly colored clothes.

Morgan Skinner began his computing career at a tender age
on a Sinclair ZX80 at school, where he was underwhelmed by some
code a teacher had written and so began programming in assembly
language. After getting hooked on Z80 (which he believes is far
better than those paltry 3 registers on the 6502), he graduated
through the school’s ZX81s to his own ZX Spectrum.
