Blake Montgomery is a journalist and fiction writer in San Francisco, where he covers technology and Silicon Valley for The Daily Beast. Previously, he worked as a breaking news reporter for BuzzFeed News, a job that led him to be arrested and jailed in Seattle for seeking comment on deadly testicular silicone injections. His work has appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic, EdSurge, and Vice's Motherboard. He's a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Stanford's creative writing program and, in the words of conservative commentator Mike Cernovich, both "an insufferable BuzzFeed shitlib" and "an essential follow" on Twitter.
