This is the blog of Alex Nunns, a writer, activist and musician from Essex, England. I co-edited Tweets from Tahrir: Egypt’s revolution as it unfolded, in the words of the people who made it, the first book to use tweets to tell the story of a historical event (later made in to a documentary film by Al Jazeera). I do editorial work on other people’s books, like Julian Assange’s When Google Met WikiLeaks and Norman Finkelstein’s Knowing Too Much. I write for Red Pepper magazine, and I campaign against the privatisation of the National Health Service with Keep Our NHS Public. I am in Charlie and the Band of Demons. On Twitter I’m @alexnunns Email algorithmblues at riseup dot net
