Susan A. Kitchens is a Computer Press Award-winning author and digital renaissance woman. Her website, Family Oral History Using Digital Tools, is devoted to tools and techniques for recording, processing and preserving the stories that matter the most. After interviewing her grandfather (he'd been given a cassette recorder and some tapes for his 99th birthday), she embarked on a quest to understand the best practices to conduct family interviews. She has been tracking the changing hardware and software scene for nearly a decade.
