Welcome to How-To Geek: a Site for Geeks, Created by Geeks

We are an online tech magazine, dedicated to providing interesting articles, how-tos, and even fun trivia to our audience of geeky (and not-so-geeky) readers. Founded in 2006, How-To Geek’s goal was to bring a better how-to site to the internet–with content that’s understandable for regular people, but geeky enough that the more technical readers would find it interesting as well.

This page is all about the people who make this site. You can also contact us, read our ethics statement, and peruse our privacy policy. Be sure to read our disclaimers as well.
