Greetings, People of Wired

August 15th, 2013 · 47 Comments

So, first, I’m super flattered to have been included on Wired’s new “101 Signals” list of recommended writers on security and politics. As you may notice, however, I’m not writing all that frequently on those topics here on my personal site anymore. If you’re interested in that, therefore, you probably want to follow me on Twitter (where I usually link stuff I’m writing elsewhere) or check out my posts on the Cato Institute blog.

Second, as quite a few people have noticed, there’s an unfortunate paucity of women on the 101 signals list, which even leaving aside considerations of gender equity, left out many of the best writers and thinkers in this space. So, without any slight intended to the excellent resources flagged by Wired, let me suggest that if you’re coming here from that list, you’ll probably also find enormous value in the Women-in-Technology Twitter list maintained by formidable privacy & drones expert Amie Stepanovich.

If you’re specifically interested in the surveillance issues I focus on, Emptywheel by the invaluable Marcy Wheeler is essential reading, as is Michelle Richardson of the American Civil Liberties Union, and ACLU’s Kade, who blogs at PrivacySOS.  You should probably just follow everyone who works for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, but Rainey Reitman and Jillian York are two of their more fecund online voices. For journalists on the security beat, your feed should include Andrea Peterson, Kashmir Hill, Julia Angwin, and Siobhan Gorman. (I’ll assume only institutional humility forbade Wired from including their own Quinn Norton and Kim Zetter on their list.)  Among academics I scruple to even attempt a partial list because there are too many brilliant thinkers out there to catalog, but for starters you should keep up with Rachel Levinson-Waldman, Jennifer Granick, Helen Nissenbaum, and Kate Crawford. This could be a much, much longer list, but start there and you’re bound to find others worth reading—or add links to your own favorite thinkers in this space in the comments.

Addendum: I note my own list is a bit melanin deficient; I tried to think of some women of color who regularly write for a popular audience on privacy/tech/surveillance/security issues and sadly came up short.  So, again, suggestions welcome in the comments.

    Julian,

    Pretty please with sugar on top, could you start posting a best of twitter to your blog or another twitter account.

    I, and I think, many others would love to read a filtered version of your twitter feed.

    Well done, Mr. Sanchez. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  • 3 Amy // Aug 16, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    The link to your posts on Cato seems to be a tad squirrely. I wanted to keep up with you there as I don’t do Twitter.

    Some things always lead one back to home :-) I was looking up old photos of Norwood NJ to post on the Facebook group’s page (07648ers) and landed on the Wikipedia site for Norwood. Did you know that Wikipedia lists you as one of Norwood’s “Notable people”? I agree :-) So proud of you!! Looking forward to hearing, reading and seeing more of you in the public arena – you go guy! !

    The link to your posts on Cato is ill-formed (and, oddly, seems to have the effect of redirecting me to a post of yours from 2003.)

  • 7 nina // Oct 3, 2013 at 5:35 am

    I agree with your list of thinkers. Specially Rachel Levinson-Waldman, Jennifer Granick, Helen Nissenbaum, and Kate Crawford! It was nice to read your blog. Thanks and keep it up. I have already added this to my reading list!

    citrus fruits, melon, cucumber, celery and tomatoes.

    you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center
    yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thank you!

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
