I'm Séamus Bellamy.
I write about technology, travel, strange people and awesome places.
Currently, I spend my days toiling in the wordmines for Reviewed.com (a USA Today company) as their Updates Editor.
I'm the Managing Editor and, an occasional writer, for Faces of Auschwitz: a collaboration fronted by photo colorist Marina Amaral and endorsed by the Auschwitz Museum. I also occasionally cause trouble as a writer for Boing Boing. In the past, you may have seen my writing featured with The New York Times, The BBC, Wired, Fast Company, Macworld. Or, maybe not--I don't want to assume anything about your reading habits.
Many moons ago, I undertook a degree in Journalism at the University of King's College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It makes me look more legit.
Since then, I've played on stage with the Chieftains, tested breathalyzers drunk as a skunk with the police, chatted with The Pogues, walked all 780 kilometers of the Camino de Santiago and traced Brendan Behan's footsteps through the pubs and hotels of New York--and I wrote it all down.
