Janet Rae-Dupree has been covering science and technology in Silicon Valley since 1993 for a number of publications, including U.S. News & World Report, BusinessWeek, the San Jose Mercury News, and the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. She was a frequent guest on cable channel Tech TV’s “Silicon Spin” technology talk show, and she was part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team at the Los Angeles Times covering the city’s riots in 1992. During the 2005–2006 academic year, Janet was a John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University, where she studied human biology and researched innovation and market transfer. She freelances for various publications, working from her home in Half Moon Bay, California, where she lives with husband, Dave Dupree, and their 9-year-old son, Matthew (although a 19-year-old calico cat named Trillian actually rules the roost).
Pat DuPree taught anatomy/physiology, biology, medical terminology, and environmental science for 24 years at several colleges and universities in Los Angeles County. She holds two undergraduate life science degrees and a master’s degree from Auburn University and conducted cancer research at Southern Research Institute in Birmingham, Alabama, before joining the Muscogee Health Department in Columbus, Georgia. In 1970, she moved to Redondo Beach, California, where she was a university instructor and raised her two sons, Dave Dupree and Mark DuPree. Now Pat is retired and lives on lovely Pine Lake in rural Georgia with her husband, Dr. James E. DuPree.
