For 19 years, Richard Seltzer worked for Digital Equipment, then Compaq, focusing on the Internet for the last five years, most recently as "Internet Evangelist." He was one of the handful of people who helped Digital Equipment to recognize and take advantage of new business opportunities on the Internet. For Digital, he wrote The AltaVista Search Revolution, which is published by Osborne/McGraw-Hill, and is now in its second edition. (Library Journal called it "indispensable.")
Now as an independent Internet marketing consultant, he frequently writes and speaks on Internet topics, acting as an advocate for more effective use of the Internet for business and education. Since leaving Compaq in December 1998, he has written Shop Online the Lazy Way for Macmillan, Take Charge of Your Web Site for Mighty Words, and Web Business Bootcamp for Wiley.
In addition, Richard runs his own small publishing business on the Internet (The B&R Samizdat Express). His acclaimed Web site serves as a test ground for his ideas about how to use text content to bring traffic to Web sites. Thanks to useful and well-indexed content, his site gets over 100,000 pages views/40,000 sessions per month with no advertising.
He graduated from Yale in 1969, with a major in English, and got an MA from the U. of Mass. at Amherst in 1972, in Comparative Literature (French, Russian, and German). His other books include: The Name of Hero (historical novel, published by Tarcher/Houghton Mifflin, 1982), Ethiopia Through Russian Eyes (translation from the Russian, Red Sea/Africa World Press, 2000), The Lizard of Oz (fantasy for all ages, B&R Samizdat Express, 1974), Now and Then and Other Tales from Ome (children's stories, B&R Samizdat Express, 1976).
