Do you know how to look for the cookies that get left on your computer’s hard drive after you visit some Web sites? Do you worry about sending sensitive documents – like book manuscripts – to editors through an ordinary email attachment? Do you have trouble keeping track of all the electronic gear, chargers and batteries you take with you on freelance business trips?
In the past couple of months, I’ve written stories on all those topics. While the articles weren’t originally intended for an audience of writers, they’re relevant to anyone who depends on computers and the Internet for work, as well as anyone who runs their own small business. Here’s a short selection, with links to the original stories:
