Best Practices in Biohackingprimalhacker.com, 2019 Look up “biohacking” and you’ll find a lot of definitions. They vary from very dark to frighteningly optimistic. For me, the definition is simple: careful application of N=1 research to get myself as healthy as I can be. I mentioned to Thaddeus of primalhacker.com that he needed more articles by women, so asked me to write something.

Submission RepliesJournal of Universal Rejection, 2011-2015As an editor at the Journal of Universal Rejection it was my responsibility to evaluate and respond to submissions when the Editor-in-Chief assigns them to me.

I’m Wearing Bright Yellow UndiesOriginally published by Nonprofit Online News, no longer around. Archived article here. 2009The subtitle is “How We Make Stuff Up When Communicating Online.” It’s so easy for our backbrains to think we connect on-line the way we do in person, but it isn’t true. I wanted to say this in a way that would be sticky in the brain, that people wouldn’t forget. Hence the title.
Buying Safe on the InternetComputer Bits Magazine, 2004I wanted to give people clues about buying safe online. Privacy, scams, phishing, merchant reviews, return policies, credit card safety — all old news now, but at that time, people didn’t know.
Internet Virus Antidote, with Richard BrodieThe article is here. 2003I saw an earlier version of this page, dropped Brodie email suggesting a few changes, and he enthusiastically encouraged me to rewrite the page. So I did.
The Virtual Village on the Edge of CyberspaceFrom the proceedings of The Second International Cyberspace Conference, 1991In 1991 the on-line world we all call home was very new.
