for Logic's Care issue, we spoke with three government technology workers about careers tending to machines behind critical services.

through their stories you hear the histories of technical systems, of policy's impact on technology, of outsourcing, of resource management, of choices within systems, of humans and what drives them.

I love talking to people about their jobs, and it was such a joy to get to talk to these folks about theirs.

here it is, hope you enjoy:
