I'm a freelance journalist and the author of "Terms of Service: Social Media and the Price of Constant Connection" (HaperCollins, 2015). I write about the politics of tech, surveillance, privacy, the nihilism of our forever wars, the depredations of a clueless media, and the occasional book review. I also sometimes yap on TV or in front of a live audience. I do some reporting, but I'm less here to break news than to take a close look at our cracked dystopia and marvel at the awful details that emerge.

My concerns range from the dangers of unchecked militarism to the rising tides to the inability to be alone. My politics are socialist, with minor variations. I think that the future sucked. I'm not bothered much by hypocrisy and I claim no purity. I'm entangled in all of this stuff alongside you.

I'm a contributing editor for The Baffler, where I write sometimes. I also have written for a bunch of websites, magazines, and newspapers whose op-ed pages you love to hate. Find my clips and other Jacob Silverman arcana on my website.
