About the Author
is a freelance writer, developer, and editor and also the technical director of 3form Ltd. (www.3form.net). He started out with the intention of becoming a world-famous nanotechnologist, so perhaps one day you might recognize his name as he receives a Nobel Prize. For now, however, Karli’s main academic interest is the .NET Framework and all the boxes of tricks it contains. Karli is also a snowboarding enthusiast, loves cooking, spends far too much time playing Anarchy Online, and wishes he had a cat. As yet, nobody has seen fit to publish Karli’s first novel, but the rejection letters make an attractive pile. If he ever puts anything up there, you can visit Karli online at www.karliwatson.com.
