Carla Schroder is a self-taught computer nerd who laid hands on her first computer around her 37th birthday. She is the author of the Linux Cookbook, Linux Networking Cookbook, the Book of Audacity, hundreds of Linux how-tos for various publications, and was the senior managing editor of Linux Today and Linux Planet. Now she copy edits for Opensource.com, tenderly placing apostrophes in the correct places and enjoying all of the great articles.
