The Outline

I am the editor of the Future section of The Outline, a general interest site for young-ish people (Here is my author page). If you want to write for me about energy, climate change, food, weed, the internet, money, privacy, biotech, health, wellness, social media, porch pirates, canned beverages, or AIs that laugh at us, please email casey.johnston@theoutline.com to receive money in exchange for your words. Here are some things I've worked on lately.
