Myriam 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. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she decided to share her experiences and thoughts on mobile technology on her blog, tnkgrl Mobile. She’s been called a “writer“, a “personality” and a “pundit“, but mostly she’s a tomboy with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants. She's senior mobile editor at Engadget and co-hosts of the Engadget Mobile podcast.
