Hi there! My name is J.A. Bell. I write essays on technology, politics, and the human condition (mostly my own), as well as short fiction. My work has been an editor’s choice on Medium, and has appeared in magazines and blogs around the world. My first book, With a Net: An Internet Memoir first appeared in 2012, and is undergoing editing for a second edition. By day, I am a customer success expert. I live in Providence, RI, with my cat, Penny, and too many gadgets.

JABell.net is developed using VS Code, while drinking coffee that has never been spilled on his MacBook Pro, which runs Ulysses, my top choice for writing software.
