I'm Wendy Liu, and I live in London.

I write and speak about technology 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

Most of my writing is for New Socialist (I'm an economics editor) and Notes From Below (I'm the web editor). I'm also writing a book for Repeater: Abolish Silicon Valley (2020).

I recently finished a masters degree on inequality at the LSE and am sharing my notes/essays/dissertation.

For a list of nearly everything I've ever published, see Writing.

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 trying not to take on any more speaking requests until the end of 2018, so please don't ask me!

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.
