RU SIrius

R.U. Sirius (real name Ken Goffman) may still be best known as the former editor of the popular early ‘90s cyberpunk magazine, Mondo 2000.  He’s author or coauthor of many books, including Mondo 2000: A User’s Guide to the New Edge, Cyberpunk Handbook, How To Mutate & Take Over the World, Design For Dying (with Timothy Leary), 21st Century Revolutionary, The Revolution: Quotations from Party Chairman R.U. Sirius, Counterculture Through The Ages: From Abraham to Acid House, True Mutations: Conversations on the Edge of Science, Technology and Consciousness, and Everybody Must Get Stoned: Rock Stars On Drugs.

Popular in the early 1990s, Mondo 2000 was described by the Washington Post as the “first magazine of the new millennium.” An early 1993 Time magazine issue dedicated to cyberpunk was designed by the Mondo 2000 art staff and featured the magazine prominently.

Sirius went on to edit several other publications, including the popular late ‘90s webzine GettingIt and the transhumanist site, H+ Magazine.  He currently edits at Acceler8or.com, described as a “thoroughfare for accelerating technoculture and screaming memes” and is currently organizing a literary-and-other-media project under the working title “Use Your Hallucinations: The History of Mondo 2000 and the Cyber Counterculture.”

Sirius’s freelance writing career started in the mid-1980s when he wrote articles about intelligence enhancing drugs and nutrients for Omni Newsletter and Whole Earth Review.  Since then, he has written on topics ranging from biotechnology to pop music.  He has been a Contributing Editor for Wired magazine and a columnist for the San Francisco Examiner, Wired News, and Artforum International.  His articles have appeared in Time, Boing Boing, San Francisco Chronicle, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Village Voice, Esquire Japan and many other publications.  He has lectured internationally about technology and culture, including the keynote address at the Virtual Reality ’95 Conference in Oslo, Norway.  He has appeared in several films including “Conceiving Ada” with Tilda Swinton and Karen Black.

Sirius lives in Mill Valley with his sweetheart Eve Berni and their cat Princess.  He still hates onions.
