Gina Trapani is a busy person, but that doesn't stop her from constantly updating her followers. The founder of the quirky blog Lifehacker — a repository of time-saving tips for programming geeks — just wants to make your life easier. Whether writing about her personal experience with speech-recognition software or announcing that the redesign of ThinkUApp.com is complete, she makes news easy to digest — unlike the writers who load industry news with insider-only technobabble.
