Dan Lyons

Dan Lyons is one of the best-known science and technology journalists in the United States. He was the technology editor at Newsweek, a staff writer at Forbes, and a columnist for Fortune magazine, while also contributing op-ed columns to the New York Times about the economics and culture of Silicon Valley. As the technology editor of Newsweek he broadened the scope of the magazine's tech coverage to include energy policy, artificial intelligence, supercomputing, fusion energy, robotics, autonomous vehicles, nation-state hacking and cyber defense. 

Dan is the author of two of the most important recent books about Silicon Valley: Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Startup Bubble, an international best-seller, and Lab Rats: How Silicon Valley Made Work Miserable for the Rest of Us, which was chosen by The Guardian as one of the best business books of 2018 and earned a glowing review in The Economist for its forward-thinking analysis connecting tech-driven globalization, hyper-capitalism in Silicon Valley, and widening income inequality—as well as a prescription for rebuilding capitalism for the 21st century. Dan also was a writer for HBO’s acclaimed comedy series, “Silicon Valley.”

Dan has advocated for racial, gender and age equality in the technology industry. He has penned articles about "bro culture," worker exploitation, and the "hustle" mentality that leads to employee burnout. He was an early critic of the gig economy for its poor treatment of workers. His work helped draw attention to working conditions in Amazon warehouses.
