Karl's been working with computers since 1983 and the internet since 1994. Karl's been an instructor / tutor in this genre for at least 15 years. "I've helped people with computer troubleshooting, computer and network security, purchases, tune ups, blogging, web site critique - you name it." Asked why he is drawn to teaching technology, he says, "I have a knack for explaining complex topics in a manner anyone can understand - in fact, that's what I enjoy doing most - explaining things.' About the only thing Karl doesn't do related to computers is programming.
