When his parents denied him a Super NES, he got mad. When they traded a prize Sega Genesis for a 2400 baud modem, he got even. Years of internet shareware and eBayed possessions later, Sean Hollister realized he could make a living by *writing* about his beloved gadgets and video games. And while the recession had other plans, he eventually made it. Ethics statement: Sean's wife is currently employed by Facebook. He does not write, edit, or vet stories about Facebook or its brands -- including Oculus, Instagram and WhatsApp.
