Brian S Hall
Brian's work as a journalist examines how the spread of computing into every device and across every human interaction fundamentally changes work, play, learning, and commerce.
At Lifewire, Brian writes about developments in social media, and how people can leverage these platforms to create entirely new forms of entertainment and communication. Prior to writing about tech, Brian helped build it. He has worked on teams that developed online billing software, digital certificates, even hydrogen fuel cells for mobile devices.
Brian wrote a series of reviews on parental monitoring software for parents of at-risk children for Tom's Guide, and was a very early proponent of bitcoin and blockchain technology, which he began writing about in 2014.
He had a contentious interview with Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales over Europe's "right to be forgotten" policies.
A long-time sufferer of tinnitus, he has written about the potential of "hearables"--devices which can aid hearing and even direct messages to a single individual in a noisy, crowded setting.
His work has been re-printed in:
His fiction work explores the intersection of technology, mortality, and faith.
Brian earned his BA in Political Science from the University of Michigan and his MA in Telecommunications Management from Michigan State University.
