Annalee Newitz

Annalee Newitz is an American journalist who covers the cultural impact of science and technology. She received a PhD in English and American Studies from UC Berkeley, with a dissertation that was later published as Pretend We’re Dead: Capitalist Monsters in American Pop Culture.

In 2002, she was awarded a Knight Science Journalism Fellowship, and was a research fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 2004-2005 she was a policy analyst for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and from 2007-2009 she was on the board of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility.

From 1999 to 2008 she wrote a syndicated weekly column called “Techsploitation.” She co-founded other magazine in 2002, which was published tri-annually until 2007. In 2008, Gawker media asked Newitz to start a blog about science and science fiction, which was dubbed io9. Newitz has remained editor-in-chief since its founding, and in 2010, io9 was named one of the top 30 science blogs by The Times.

Newitz’s work has been published in Popular Science, Wired, Salon.com, New Scientist, Metro Silicon Valley, San Francisco Bay Guardian, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, and AlterNet. She has discussed her work on CNN, The New York Times, NPR, G4, BBC, and CBC, and she is a regular lecturer at colleges and conferences.
