DescriptionSince its founding in 1998 Ars Technica has grown to become a trusted go-to source for news reviews and information about scientific advancements technological breakthroughs video gaming tech policy gadgetry software hardware and everything in between. However Ken Fisher the site’s Massachusetts-based founder and editor-in-chief claims Ars Technica’s success as one of the oldest and largest tech-focused websites isn’t due to some glitzy marketing campaign.
