Before Wired, Adam spent eight years as a reporter for Newsweek, primarily focusing on science, technology, and medicine. While covering the emerging Internet revolution in the mid-1990s, he also carved out a geek culture beat: science fiction, comic books, and movies with lots of special effects. Adam worked on Newsweek’s presidential campaign book project in 1999 and 2000, following the campaigns of Bill Bradley, Al Gore, and Hillary Clinton. In 2002 and 2003 Adam was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studied the intersection of urban theory, ecology, and public health. A native of Los Angeles, Adam has a masters degree from the Boston University Graduate Program in Science Writing and an undergraduate degree from Pomona College in Claremont, California. He lives in Berkeley with his wife and two sons.
