I'm Wendy Liu, and I live in San Francisco (via London).

I write and speak about technology & labour from a socialist perspective.

Before I discovered the "left", I was a software engineer and startup founder (see "Silicon Inquiry").

This website is meant as a record of things I've done. To get in touch, find me on Twitter or email me.


writing

I write opinion pieces for various tech and/or political publications, mostly UK-based—see Writing for the full list.

I'm writing a book for Repeater: Abolish Silicon Valley (2020).

Finally, I'm writing a blog post every day in 2019, as part of a New Year's resolution to combat writer's block. See Fragments.

speaking

I occasionally do talks/panels/podcasts on topics at the intersection of tech and the left.

For a chronological list of my past & upcoming speaking appearances (podcasts, talks, panels, etc), see Speaking.

I'm currently not taking on any UK-based events as I'll be in San Francisco for an unspecified amount of time.

code

I've been coding for a while, mostly in the realm of web dev (primarily backed). See: my GitHub, and past projects.

I no longer do it as a job, but I do manage some websites for UK left projects in my spare time: New Socialist, The World Transformed, and Notes From Below.

I'm not taking on any more projects at this time, but I know people who are! Message me.

other

Jacobin reading group: I started an informal reading group on contemporary left politics in London. Details here.

David Foster Wallace: I maintain a comprehensive list of his work and also built the website for the annual conference (see this Outline article for more details).

Art: This is super old & kind of embarrassing, but here's a list of paintings/illustrations I've done.
