Klint Finley

Portland, OR

I write for Wired, where I report on startups, emerging tech, privacy, technology law, network neutrality, machine learning, open source, hacker culture, code literacy and more. I’m always looking for story ideas. You can contact me at “me at klintfinley dot com.” If it’s sensitive, you can send me an encrypted e-mail. My public GPG key is here.

I also co-host the podcast Mindful Cyborgs with Chris Dancy, maintain the blog Technoccult, write fiction (my first short story was published in the anthology Membrane last year by Dreadful Cafe) and pen the occasional column for TechCrunch (but I don’t cover news there, so please don’t send me pitches for TC).

I’m available for freelance journalism work, but I can’t accept content work for vendors. I’m also available to speak about any of my beats, or about journalism in general, at independent conferences and other events. See here for more info.

A few of my signature stories include:

It’s Time to Encrypt the Entire Internet

The Internet of Things Could Drown Our Environment in Gadgets

This Farmbot Makes Growing Food as Easy as Playing Farmville
