Writer and sometime activist with a special interest in the political and cultural consequences of new technology.
In recent years, I’ve been involved with various movements and organisations, notably UK Uncut and Sukey. I've also worked with Arts Against Cuts, Disabled People Against Cuts, Occupy London and the Open Rights Group. I am a signer of the Declaration of Internet Freedom and a member of the Green Party of England and Wales.
I practise meditation and help organise and regularly facilitate at a peer-led sitting group in central London.
About a decade ago I followed my curiosity and changed careers from journalism to software engineering. After several years at the code face, I returned to writing. I now work as a technical author in the UK and am a Global Fellow at the Project for the Study of the 21st Century.
