Do you know Annalee Newitz?

download-8Do you know Annalee Newitz? You should. Her first novel,Autonomous: A Novel, is out, and it extends her career nicely. Confession, I was a fanboy of her “Techsploitation” column online and in the Metro Silicon Valley from 1999 through 2007 when I was in the Dot Com trenches. As a reporter in the bay area, I occasionally called her for insight or background on stories that overlapped with her editorials or reporting She was always generous with her time and advice. I was thrilled when they gave her IO9 in 2008 and doubly thrilled with her first novel, Autonomous: A Novel late last year. So needless to say, I’m a big fan.

Newitz has a wisdom about technology and sees fully the apparatus of capitalism in the technology sector of our economy. She also has a great sense of the cultural, racial and gendered seams in our culture and a witty and open approach to writing about sex. I’m inviting you to discover her.
