photo of Dylan Tweney against a painted red block wallHi, I’m Dylan Tweney.

I write essays, blogs, research, and a press release or two … and sometimes haiku or other little poems …

Among other things.


I am the head of communications for Valimail, a San Francisco-based startup enabling email you can trust.

I’m the founder of tinywords, a daily journal of haiku and micropoetry (publishing nearly daily since 2000), and of Tweney Media, a content-centric communications agency. Note: Tweney Media is currently focused on pro-bono, nonprofit work.

Formerly, I was the editor-in-chief of VentureBeat and an editor at Wired. And I’ve been writing, editing, and publishing professionally for over two decades. See LinkedIn for professional details.

I’ve been blogging since the last millennium (my first post, on Blogger, was in November 1999), mostly about tech and media but sometimes about swimming or running or the Bay Area or life with kids. I try to write and draw every day, and if you’re into that sort of thing, most of my poetry and artsy stuff is on my Tumblr, What Is Found There.
