Hello. I’m Lisa Vaas, and I write. Since 1995, I’ve been earning sweet, sweet cash to write about technology, careers, science and health—particularly diabetes and snacks. I rose to the lofty heights of Executive Editor for eWEEK, popped out with the 2008 crash, joined the freelancer economy, and am still writing for my beloved peeps at places like Sophos’s Naked Security, CIO Mag, ComputerWorld, PC Mag, IT Expert Voice, Software Quality Connection, Time, Forbes, PBS’ Next Avenue site (that’s for Boomers), and the US and British editions of HP’s Input/Output. Nowadays, I write about anything that amuses or intrigues me, so the mix has gotten more spicy. As I may have mentioned elsewhere on the site, I respond to and cash and flattery, so don’t be shy. Don’t be lewd, though, unless you’re witty.
