Wendy M. Grossman, the HTML Edition

Wendy M. Grossman: who?

Wendy M. Grossman is an American freelance writer based in London. I write a weekly column that runs on Fridays called net.wars. I also write for publications such as Scientific American, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, The Register, The Inquirer, and ZDNet UK. I am also founder and former editor (twice) of the British magazine The Skeptic, and still write a column for it and also one on skepticism for the Philosopher's Magazine. You can read samples of my work here. I have written or edited five books, and have appeared on many TV and radio programs either as a skeptic commenting on paranormal claims or as an expert commentator on Internet issues. Contact information is here.
