About

Hello, internet denizen. My name is Brian Merchant, and I’m the author of a book about the iPhone called the One Device. I am also a writer, editor, and producer at¬†Motherboard, VICE’s science and technology outlet, and the founder/editor of Terraform, its online fiction site. My work has appeared in the Guardian, Slate, VICE Magazine, Fast Company, Discovery, GOOD, Paste, Grist, Salon,¬†and beyond.

I do some TV and radio from time to time to talk about various utopian projects and dystopian realities and the things that lie in between. I live in LA, which makes that easier. I can be reached at briancmerchant at gmail dot com. I’m on Twitter, too.
