Jacqui Cheng is the Editor-in-Chief of The Wirecutter. She tells the story of how she arrived there starting with her mom who was an early inspiration, introducing her to computers as a child. Later at Purdue University, she specialized in networking and programming, C# and C++. After graduation and web-database work in Cincinnati, she and her husband made a bold decision to move to Chicago—neither with a job offer—but also as Jacqui had started writing for ars technica. She became a major contributor starting in 2007, specializing in Apple & Internet law. In 2013, Brian Lam, the founder of Wirecutter brought Jacqui on as EIC. Listen in as Jacqui fills in all the details and also delves into modern day Apple with me.
