Quinn Norton

Writer

Quinn Norton is a writer who likes to hang out in the dead end alleys and rough neighborhood of the Internet, where bad things can happen to defenseless little packets.

They are also places were new freedoms and poetries are born, and run riot over the network. She started studying hackers in 1995, after a wasted youth of Usenet and BBSing.

These days, Quinn is a journalist, has been published in Wired, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Make Magazine, Seed, and Irish Times. She recently concluded a multi-month series on Anonymous and Occupy for Wired. She's also the Byte Rights columnist for Maximum PC. She covers topics such as science, technology, copyright law, robotics, body modification, and medicine, but no matter how many times she tries to leave, she always comes back to hackers.
