About the Author
Mark The Red Harlan was born in Rawlins, Wyoming, and has lived exactly the life you d expect as a result. Armed with a degree in Applied Mathematics (from a university he loathes so much that he refuses to even utter the name), he fell headlong into a 20–year stint in the Silicon Valley s computer industry.
Red s professional experience includes human–interface work at Apple Computer, development of the bidding schema used by eBay, overseeing application development at Danger (makers of the T–Mobile Sidekick), as well as co–founding CyberArts Licensing (suppliers of the poker software seen on the MANSION and GamesGrid sites).
At the tender age of 8, he won a pinewood derby competition in the Cub Scouts, giving him his first heavy swig of victory that would forever warp his oh–so–soft–and–pliable mind. Under the influence of this experience, he started playing poker that same year ( might as well win money if you re going to win ) and became good enough by 2005 to be a net money winner in that year s World Series of Poker.
Red is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and has an extensive writing background ranging from penning InfoWorld s Notes from the Fringe during the heyday of the Internet, to being lead author of the book he thinks everyone should own (his mom does): Winning at Internet Poker For Dummies (Wiley).
Red maintains a Web site of poker articles at www.redsdeal.com and welcomes non–spam e–mail at RedsDeal+HEFD@gmail.com (be sure to include the +).
