I have a Patreon, here, where you can subscribe to support my security and systems-focused writing.  You sign up for a fixed amount per essay (with an optional monthly cap), and you'll be notified every time I publish something new.  At higher support levels, you'll get early access, a chance to get in-depth answers to your questions, and even for more general consulting time.

Headshot of Eleanor Saitta

Eleanor Saitta is a hacker, designer, artist, writer, and barbarian.  She makes a living and a vocation of understanding how complex systems operate and redesigning them to work, or at least fail, better.  Her work is transdisciplinary, using everything from electronics, software, and paint to social rules and words as media with which to explore and shape our interactions with the world.  Her focuses include the seamless integration of technology into the lived experience, the humanity of objects and the built environment, and systemic resilience and conviviality.

Eleanor is a member of the advisory boards at the International Modern Media Instititute (IMMI), Freedom of the Press Foundation, Geeks Without Bounds (GWoB), the IFTF Governance Futures Lab, and the Calyx Institute, is part of the Trike and Briar/Bramble software projects, and works as a freelance security architecture and strategy consultant to news organizations, NGOs, and software teams like Mailpile and Commotion.

Prior to this, she was Principal Security Engineer at the Open Internet Tools Project (OpenITP), directing the OpenITP Peer Review Board for open source software and working on adversary modeling, and also had a long career in the commercial security consulting space.  She also previously co-founded the Constitutional Analysis Support Team (CAST) and the Seattle-based Public N3rd Area hacker space.

Eleanor is a regular speaker at conferences, universities, and other institutions including the CCC Congress, Transmediale, ToorCon, Knutepunk, Arse Electronic, Harvard, Yale, and the London ICA. She is nomadic, living mostly in airports and occasionally in New York, London, Stockholm, and Berlin. She can be found at http://dymaxion.org and on Twitter as @dymaxion.
