Scott Stevenson was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, though he lived the first three years of his life in London. He now lives in Sunnyvale, California.
He owns a tiny company called Tree House Ideas, which published the DataCrux framework. DataCrux provided a high-level interface to SQLite, and was used to create several Mac apps, including MemoryMiner, LogTen, and Mindburn.
He created the MacNN logo and basic corporate identity, which features the yellow and white text on blue, the zoom tool icon, and the tagline "Read Me First."
Scott co-founded a web development company called Maxify in 1996. They did work for a bunch of Bay Area companies, and created AltaVista's first company-wide intranet. He was interviewed in 1999 for his work at Maxify during an hour-long CNN special on Silicon Valley.
