After completing the reviews, Julie asked if I'd like to be on her staff of writers, and I eagerly accepted. It's quite a range of personalities, and I'm enjoying getting to know them. Most of us have never met face-to-face, but in the true spirit of Web 2.0-ness, message and email each other about things both important and inane. So, if you think I've not posted often enough here, you may want to check out the list of articles I have posted on that site. I'll try to link here, but don't expect miracles.

I have been following the various reviews and articles of The Gadgeteer website for many years. Back in the waning years of the last century, I found out about new Newton and Palm cases, software, and accessories from their many posts. At one point, I responded to a call for those interested in an iPod battery replacement, and won the right to attempt it. The first review I wrote was about an experience of irritated failure. Several years went by, and in early 2009, I again approached Julie about reviewing several iPhone apps that I loved and used quite frequently.
