I am Smári McCarthy – software developer, writer, hacker, freedom fighter. A jack of many trades. I travel a lot, I do a lot of talks, I write a lot. I use Twitter and Facebook (reluctantly). I live and die by e-mail. There are other ways to contact me. Somebody wrote a Wikipedia page about me.


I work on Mailpile and some other things. I used to be the executive director of IMMI, but now I’m a board member there instead.

I work on everything from information security and free software development to infrastructure assessments, general technical consulting, information policy planning, political consulting, and whatever.

Some interests

Societal cybernetics, self-organization, control systems, statistics, digital freedoms (free software, free hardware, free culture, free spectrum), digital fabrication, industrialization & industrial policy, international law.
