About the Authors

Michael Rees is currently an Associate Professor in Computer Science at Bond University in Australia, where he lives with his wife, Margot. He currently teaches and undertakes research on the Internet and the World Wide Web. In addition, he teaches programming with Java, JavaScript, and Visual Basic. He has over thirty years of teaching experience in programming, operating systems, human-computer interaction, electronic publishing, and the Internet.

Educated in the United Kingdom, Michael obtained his Bachelor degree in Mathematics at the University of Birmingham. At Oxford University, Pembroke College, he was one of the first students to gain a Postgraduate degree in Programming Languages. He gained his PhD at the University of Southampton in incremental language compiler design.

Coming to Australia in the mid-1980s, Michael established research groups in human-computer interaction at the University of Tasmania and at Bond University. He concentrated on user interface design for electronic mail systems and subsequently on collaborative systems such as chat systems and electronic meetings. This research work naturally utilized the World Wide Web, and from 1993, Michael has gained experience of user interface design in this medium. His work is published in many journal and conference papers.

He is co-author of two previous books from Addison-Wesley (Text Processing with troff, with D. W. Barron, 1985, and Practical Compiling with Pascal-S, with D. J. Robson, 1988).

Andrew White has been involved in Web and multimedia development for over eight years. His accomplishments include the production of independent video for public access television, the development of Web-based action games, and the administration of an online newspaper. His current interests include technologies for the reliable and secure delivery of online content to wireless devices. He presently works as a software consultant in Seattle.

Bebo White is a member of the technical staff at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), the high-energy physics laboratory operated by Stanford University. He also holds academic appointments at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of San Francisco, and Hong Kong University.

He was fortunate enough to become involved with WWW development quite early while on sabbatical at CERN in 1989. Consequently, he was a part of the team instrumental in establishing the first non-European web site at SLAC in December 1991.

Bebo has authored and co-authored multiple books and articles. He has lectured and spoken internationally to academic and commercial audiences and has been particularly involved with two major international conference series: the Computing in High Energy Physics (CHEP) Conference and the International World Wide Web Conference. He served as Co-Chair of the Sixth International World Wide Web Conference, co-hosted by SLAC and Stanford University.

In 1996, Mr. White was added to the Micro Times 100 list of those making outstanding contributions to personal computing. He is a member of the IW3C2 (International World Wide Web Conference Committee), a fellow of the International World Wide Web Institute (IWWWI) and is cited by the World Wide Web Consortium.
