Featured journalist: Klint Finley

Today we're proud to feature Klint Finley, who is both a TechCrunch columnist and a Wired reporter. Squarely on the technology beat, Finley covers everything from patent wars to big data to cryptocurrencies to hacker culture. You'll find examples of that work everywhere in his portfolio, underneath enticing headlines like "Hogwarts for Hackers: Inside the Science and Tech School of Tomorrow" and "Mathematicians Predict the Future With Data From the Past."

He got his first taste of news, however, in high school, when he served as the arts and entertainment editor for his newspaper. Later his first professional job would be at ReadWriteWeb, covering the enterprise tech beat. And for anyone interested in pitching him any time nowadays? Stick to week days during pacific business hours, he advises.
