Brittany first became interested in technology when her dad showed her how to play Diablo II. She is an early-American/Canadian history Ph.D. student and is concerned about incorporating technology into the humanities and digitizing historical resources. When not writing tech news or trying to save old documents from falling into pieces, you can most likely find her playing with her rescued Saint Bernard-mix, Freckles.
