tnkgrl (Myriam Joire) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron…

She’s been stomping, typing and hacking ever since! She’s a code-monkey by day, a pirate-freak by night.

One day she decided to share her experiences and thoughts on mobile technology, and so her blog, tnkgrl Mobile, was born.

Fast forward a few years, and she’s a columnist and podcast co-host at Engadget.

She’s been called a “writer“, a “personality” and a “pundit“.

But mostly, she’s a butchy dyke with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants :)

She is based in San Francisco. She can be reached by email at and followed on Twitter as @tnkgrl.
