“Violet Blue is a self-made wunderkind who is now one of our chief pundits on sex ed, porn for women, privacy and bleeding-edge tech culture. Courted by OWN and appearing globally in major publications, everyone wants to know what Violet Blue has to say about sex and tech’s edgiest issues today.
ZDNet, c|net, CBS News journalist, educator, speaker, crisis counselor, volunteerNGO trainer: Blue is outspoken and controversial. A domain to Libya, yelled at by Steve Jobs, the locus of Google nymwars, the 1st female podcaster; she won a Federal lawsuit to stop an impersonator, was SF Chronicle’s sex columnist, getscensored, is at home in a machine shop or on a motorcycle.
