Timothy B. Lee is a reporter who has written about technology, economics, and public policy for more than a decade. He joined the Washington Post in 2013 to lead a team covering tech policy.
The next year he left the Post along with Ezra Klein and several other Post staffers to launch Vox.com. From 2014 to 2017, he led Vox’s coverage of technology and business. He also wrote extensively about economic policy, including monetary policy and housing issues. From 2017 to 2021, he covered tech policy, artificial intelligence, and the future of transportation for Ars Technica. Earlier in his career, Tim wrote about policy issues for the Cato Institute and freelanced for a variety of publications, including Reason, Ars Technica, Slate, and the New York Times.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Minnesota and a master’s degree in computer science from Princeton. While at Princeton, he was the co-creator of RECAP, a browser extension that helps people share paywalled public documents from the federal judiciary. The software is still widely used by lawyers, journalists, and non-profit organizations.
