About Charles Platt

Charles Platt became interested in computers when he acquired an Ohio Scientific C4P in 1979. After writing and selling software by mail order, he taught classes in BASIC programming, MS-DOS, and subsequently Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. He wrote five computer books during the 1980s. He has also written science fiction novels such as The Silicon Man (published originally by Wired books) and Protektor (from Avon Books). He stopped writing science fiction when he started contributing to Wired magazine in 1993, and became one of its three senior writers a couple of years later. Charles began contributing to Make magazine in its third issue and is currently a contributing editor. Make: Electronics is his first book for Make Books. Currently he is designing and building prototypes of medical equipment in his workshop in a northern Arizona wilderness area.

    I am an online teacher and have taken some time to figure out the components I want to have in my website. And, I love (and am possibly semi-obsessed with) the designs on SquareSpace, so much so that I want to build my website on SquareSpace.

    Refer to my comment on October 25 2015 below. PayPal has donation buttons that you can insert into your website builder. But if you want a website builder that offers a specific donation function, Squarespace has it.

      Here I ask a bit deeper on this similar subject, although I suspect from your previous comment you won't know the answer.

    That's a fair point. I'm not sure why Squarespace doesn't offer .CA domain name options. Have you had a chance to reach out to them to inquire why?
