I'm Mat. I make magazines and websites.
I'm a senior writer with Wired, co-founder of Longshot magazine and media innovator. I used to make lots of single serving sites, like Barack Obama is Your New Bicycle, and a bunch of other stuff that's just too awesome.
Here are some stories I wrote about getting crushingly hacked, the way Yahoo screwed up Flickr, a delightful heart-warmer live from CES, and Generation X.
You may also have seen my work in 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, or Women's Health, among other places.
I like music cycling and running and hiking and open water swimming and making myself stronger and faster and smarter. I have escaped from muggers, lions, cobras, mosquitos, dolphins and Alcatraz. I drink too much beer, and even more coffee. I am from Alabama. Holla.
