About the Author:

This book is based on a Web site, whatis.com, created by Lowell Thing in September, 1996, as an experiment in hypertext and also as a place for some information he was always forgetting. The original idea was to see how many useful hypertext links could fit on a Web page, and he wrote the first few topics in order to see what the idea would look like. One topic led to another and, by mid-2001, Lowell and some freelance contributors had written 3,500 definitions.

In February 2000, Whatis.com was purchased by TechTarget, a diversified media company providing targeted IT media to technology professionals. Lowell continues to play an active role as Editor of the site. Whatis.com currently serves more than one million visitors each month.

Lowell lives in Kingston, New York, with his wife, Suzanne. Their daughter, Emily, created the logo that was used during whatis.comUs first three years, and their daughter, Hillary, contributed some of the first definitions. Lowell was formerly a technical writer and information planner for IBM. He is a senior member of the Society for Technical Communication.

Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
