Caitlin Forestell
Site Editor,
Hi, I'm Cait and I'm the Site Editor of, part of the TechTarget network.
I'm a Boston native, but a transplant to Ottawa, Ontario. This means I'm living the dream up here in the snowy capitol, editing cloud computing news stories and tips from our experts and writing about such topics as cloud security issues, cloud management ideas, and open source cloud computing.
But the head isn't always up in the -- well you know; I'm also a nonfiction reader for Ploughshares, a pretty killer literary journal, as well as dabbling in the craft myself. I expand my horizons past tech geekiness to write about travel, health, shopping (got to have coupons!), kids and childcare, toys (!), and pop culture.
Despite my site's preference, I'm a big fan of the serial comma.
