Craig Crossman may have started the show, but his resume goes back further. Highlights include a Computer Science degree from Florida Atlantic University, entertaining in Las Vegas, running an Apple store when Apple was still up and coming, and writing a syndicated column for many years. You might say that Computer America is the natural fusion of his passions, and continues to be his creative project. It’s Craig who brings the journalistic and entertaining aspects to the show.
Ben is the Host of the show, and his main function is to keep the listener on their toes. His character brings the wit and creativity that are fundamental to the tech culture. Ben enjoys short walks on the beach, and sitting for extended periods of time. His dogs, Zac and Molly, may some times be seen in the background of the live video feed of the show. He continues to innovate for Computer America, branching into web development, writing, and how-to’s.
Corissa is an expert at whatever is needed for the show. Almost all of our guests have been personally researched, scheduled, and prepared by her before the show even begins. She is also responsible in large part for the organization of Computer America, which helps everyone else complete their tasks with ease. If you are looking to get in touch with the show’s staff, she would be the best place to start.
Food, Wine, and Linux may seem like a strange combination, but combining three passions can be a wonderful thing. I’m Marcel Gagné. Those of you who read Cooking with Linux, the multi-award-winning column that appeared monthly in Linux Journal magazine for 10 years, likely agree.

“As a technolgy expert with over 30 years in the industry I grew to love computers and technology. As a baby boomer, my goal is to bring technology to others of my generation and those older who didn’t grow up with computers. My philosophy is shown in my trademark “Compu-KISS” — Computers & Technology — Keeping It Short & Simple.” – Sandy Berger
