pbump.net is the personal blog of Philip Bump, who is me.

The site started in 2001, doing basically what it does now: sharing links and sometimes making jokes about them.

These days, I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with my wife, China, and our dog, Lucy. I write for The Atlantic Wire.

I used to write for Grist, was a Senior Designer at Adobe, ran political campaigns in the Silicon Valley, did communications work in New York City. The New York Times insisted that I'm "good at math," which - I guess.

One time, I was on the Daily Show.

In 2009, I served as a juror in the case of The People vs. Anthony Marshall and Francis Morrissey, better known as the Astor trial. It lasted about six months.

In 2010, I was a finalist for a Mirror Award - presented by Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications for excellence in coverage of the media - in the category Best Single Article - Digital Media. And later that year, we went to Africa.

Then nothing else interesting happened.
