Currently writing TOO EARLY FOR THE FUTURE (expected in 2024) on the practice and history of speculating on the future.

I write a column called "Speculations" for Filmmaker magazine. It is a series of essays on science fiction films and books and art and other culture. You can read the archive here.

Here's a list of some of my writing including fiction, reporting, and criticism.

I wrote a short radio play for Unfinished Live in 2021. It's about how the history of the internet will be told in the future. Here's a series of video essays I made called Just Browsing. And here's a video of me reading from my short story Users.
