I’m an independent journalist, writing about politics, technology, human rights, and inequality. I was previously a staff writer at Fast Company, where I covered the exciting, frustrating, and confusing ways that technology and politics intersect. That means I often write about topics like privacy, free/open source software, accessibility, gender equality, hacktivism, and net neutrality.
I got my start as a journalist working as a foreign correspondent in Turkey, where I wrote for Inter Press Service, Al Akhbar English, and Egypt Independent. Today I still write about Turkey on occasion and I co-edit the Turkey section on Jadaliyya, a website devoted to independent news and analysis of the Middle East. I was previously the web editor for Mashallah News, a collective arts and culture blog covering the Middle East and North Africa; I still have a lot of love for what the good people at Mashallah do – there’s nothing else quite like it on the web.
