I'm Mat. I make magazines and websites.
I'm a senior writer with Wired, co-founder of Longshot magazine and once made lots of single serving sites, like Barack Obama is Your New Bicycle among many others.
I've written about getting crushingly hacked, the way Yahoo screwed up Flickr, a delightful heart-warmer live from CES, a place called Google Island, my time as a Glasshole, and the pains of being in Generation X.
You might also know my work from 7x7, The Awl, The Bold Italic, Budget Travel, The Daily, Gizmodo, Macworld, Mother Jones, The National Journal, The New York Sun, O The Oprah Magazine, Popular Science, Runner's World, Salon, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, The SF Weekly, Time, WIRED, WIRED UK, Women's Health, or possibly maybe Tumblr.
I've escaped from muggers, lions, cobras, mosquitos, dolphins and Alcatraz.
I've been a guest on NBC's Dateline, NPR's All Things Considered and Morning Edition, BBC's Horizon, ABC's Good Morning America, CNN, MSNBC, and CNBC.
I live by the ocean in San Francisco, California with my wife and family. I drink a lot beer, and even more coffee. I'm originally from Alabama. Holla at me.
