The Brief was founded by Richard Dunlop-Walters, the sole editor and writer, in 2012 with the mission of sharing technology news that matters,

looking for a middle ground between old media's sporadic, staid coverage and the spastic, insidery firehose of most online news sources.

In short, technology news for regular people.


Additionally, The Brief serves its readers and only its readers.

Meaning there is no advertising whatsoever, and regular readers are encouraged to give me feedback on anything and become members to help support The Brief
