Journalist, Author, Tech Industry Expert

A Contributing Editor for Wired and a contributor to The New York Times, Clive Thompson is a prominent technology writer, respected for longform journalism that delves into science, literature, history, and philosophy. He specializes in writing not merely about the inventors of technologies, but about how everyday people use them—often quite unpredictably. Drawing from his latest book Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World, Clive will discuss issues of privacy and cybersecurity through the lens of those who seek to disrupt them: the hacker community.
