Author biography
Journalist, information-activist, and commentator, Asher Wolf has been described as a 'twitter journalist' by the Sydney Morning Herald, and 'one of the key activists across the world in coordinating news and information relating to breaking the old information hegemony', by Swedish Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge. A prolific user of Twitter, Asher is a contributor to New Matilda and a member of the Australian MEAA journalist’s union. She’s also the founder of the CryptoParty movement, with events promoting personal privacy and cryptography in over 60 locations around the world. Boho feral, feminist and fascinated by the implications of all things machine and geek, Asher Wolf is tinkering at the crossroads of government transparency, personal privacy, journalism, social media, technology and activism.
