Instead of a list of Friday Fives, I have four firsts to wrap up the first week of July:
- I wrote a short piece for The Washington Post on summer writing exercises for children and adolescents.
- My friend Debbie Chachra wrote about peak plastics for Discover Magazine.
- Friend Molly Sauter is in The Atlantic debunking myths about hackers.
- And friend Quinn Norton wrote a feature about Anonymous for Wired.
This is the first time Deb, Molly, and I have written for these respective publications — Deb’s a professor and Molly’s a grad student, so they usually write for academic journals. Quinn’s a journalist, and this was her first feature for Wired.
As a side note — this is why dinner parties are so fun. We have a wide range of expertise and interests!
