About the Author Janine Warner is a best-selling author, professional speaker, and strategic Internet consultant. Since 1995, she has written ten books about the Internet, including the best-selling Dreamweaver For Dummies, a guide to Macromedia’s award-winning Web design program, 50 Fast Dreamweaver Techniques, and Managing Web Projects For Dummies. Janine was inspired to write a book about family Web sites after giving her sister-in-law a digital camera for Christmas and then helping her learn to use her computer to make the most of all those digital pictures. In Creating Family Web Sites For Dummies, Janine combines her personal experience using the Internet to communicate with family and friends with more than 10 years of professional experience working on the Internet. She still remembers what it was like when computers were a mystery to her (they still are sometimes), and she draws on her background in journalism to serve as a “techy translator.” Drawing also on her international experience, Janine uses a broad range of examples from many countries in this book. Her expertise in multimedia, technology, and education have taken her on consulting assignments from Miami to Mexico and on speaking engagements from New York to New Delhi. She is fluent in Spanish and travels regularly to Spain and Latin America for consulting projects and speeches. A recognized Internet expert, Janine has been a featured guest on numerous radio and television shows, including news programs on ZDTV, ABC, and NBC. Janine is a former member of the faculty at the University of Southern California Annenberg and the University of Miami, and she currently serves as the Multimedia Program Manager for the Western Knight Center, a joint project of USC and Berkeley that provides specialized training for professional journalists. From 1998 to 2000, Janine worked for The Miami Herald, first as their Online Managing Editor and later as Director of New Media. She also served as Director of Latin American Operations for CNET Networks, an international technology media company. An award-winning reporter, she earned a degree in Journalism and Spanish from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and worked for several years in Northern California as a reporter and editor at Vision Latina Newspaper and the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Point Reyes Light, and as a freelance writer for more than a dozen other publications.
