Hello

My name is Andrea Peterson

I am a person who writes things on the Internet — mostly about the Internet.

Right now, I'm investigating federal surveillance and technology issues for the Project on Government Oversight.

In the past, the majority of my words were written for The Washington Post or ThinkProgress. But you can also find some of them at Slate, Science Progress, and the Sunlight Foundation.

I live in Washington, D.C. with my husband and two cats named after obsolete office equipment. The cats, not the husband. My interests beyond Internet words include board games, going outside, and mechanical typewriters.

Seriously, I have four typewriters.

Want to get in touch, digitally?

Let's do it! If it's about government oversight work, ping me at apeterson@pogo.org.

"You down with PGP?"

Yeah, you know me. My fingerprint for my work email is:

But if I'm being honest, I'd rather use Signal. Ask me for my number via email.

Find me on Twitter at @kansasalps.

I'm also on LinkedIn, if you're into that.

If it's personal, email me at andrealynnepeterson@gmail.com.
