Mat Honan


I make magazines and websites.

I'm a senior writer for, a former senior reporter for Gizmodo, and media innovator. I co-founded the 2010 Knight-Batten award-winning Longshot magazine, and my 2009 WIRED cover story as a human node in a location-aware world was awarded the Best Innovation Journalism Story of the Year from Stanford University. Online, I've created many of your favorite single serving sites, including Barack Obama is your New Bicycle, Joe Barton Would Like to Apologize, Should I be Worried About Swine Flu, and dozens more. (No, seriously, dozens.) You may also have seen my work in 7x7, The Awl, The Bold Italic, Budget Travel, Gizmodo, Macworld, Mother Jones, The National Journal, The New York Sun, O The Oprah Magazine, Popular Science, Runner's World, Salon, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, The SF Weekly, Time, WIRED, WIRED UK, or Women's Health, among other places.

I live by the ocean in San Francisco with my wife and daughter. Holla.
