At Massively, Bree spends her hours slavishly copyediting, dueling with PR, co-hosting the podcast, and tinkering in the darkest dungeons of the site code. She currently pens Working As IntendedAsk Massively, Week in Review, Not So Massively, Betawatch, and The Think Tank and contributes to The Daily Grind.
