About Benj Edwards
Benj Edwards' interests in science and the arts inspire his written works on the past, present, and future of technology. As a collector and student of vintage computers and video games for over 20 years, he brings a deep sense of tech history to publications such as The Atlantic, FastCompany, PC World, Macworld, Edge, and PCMag.

Edwards is also founder and Editor-in-Chief of Vintage Computing and Gaming (VC&G), a regularly updated blog dedicated to classic technology. VC&G's unusual dual devotion to both computer and video game history has attracted millions of readers since 2005.

As a songwriter and musician, Edwards previously formed the world's first "dot-com band," Request-A-Song.com, which explored audience interactivity, online music distribution methods, and new music business models, gaining acclaim from Billboard and USA Today.
