The Big Bio
I live in Brooklyn, NY and write about technology, security, gadgets, gear, wristwatches, and the Internet. After spending four years as an IT programmer, I switched gears and became a full-time journalist. My work has appeared in the New York Times, Laptop, PC Upgrade, Surge, Gizmodo, Men’s Health, InSync, Linux Journal, Popular Science, Sync, The Stir and I’ve written Black Hat: Misfits, Criminals, and Scammers in the Internet Age and Bloggers Boot Camp. I also speak and consult. I have forthcoming books about Marie Antoinette’s watch as well as a YA fiction book, Mytro. You can find out about my writing here.
I am former CEO of Freemit.com, a fintech startup that I started with some old friends. We aim to change the world of finance with cryptocurrencies and the blockchain.
I am currently Editor-At-Large for TechCrunch.com and I run the BWL family of blogs, SlushPile.net and WristWatchReview.com. I also record the HourTime Podcast with Ariel Adams and the Technotopia Podcast. This site is infrequently updated with my musings on technology but for goofy stuff you can visit biggs.cc and for most of my tech content head over to TechCrunch.
