J. Patrick Brown


J. Patrick Brown is from New Orleans, lives in Boston, and writes and edits words for a living. Here’s his LinkedIn, if you don’t believe him.

He wrote a dumb book called Hungover Owls and he used to be the editor of analternative newspaper.

Currently, he’s the Editor of MuckRock, where he helps people file public records requests and then writes about the amazing things that come out of them.

Like these CIA cafeteria complaints. There was a Daily Show segment about that one. Or his work with FBI files,which written about in the New York Timesand tweeted out by a famous person.

He’s pretty cool, so why not send him anemail? Or follow him on Twitter? His Facebook‘s kind of a mess, though.

Oh, and here’s hisPGP key if you’re the PGP type.
