My name is Daniel Miessler and I work in information security based out of San Francisco, California. I spend my free time reading, writing, and thinking about how technology intersects with humanity, what’s coming next, and how we can best prepare for it.
I started this site in 1999 as a place to capture and explain things I’ve learned, and over time it’s become my life platform. My essays are under
blog, my tutorials and primers are under
tutorials, and everything else can be found under
If you’re new to the site, consider starting with my recommended content and subscribing to Unsupervised Learning—my weekly show (podcast and newsletter) where I talk about my handpicked stories in information security and technology, and why they matter.
I hope you find something here worth your time.
