About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Effective Altruism and TED Talk

I've been enjoying Jacy Anthis' blog, The Best We Can and the action-biased (as opposed to "more discussion") attitude taken. For an interesting animal-related post, see Indirect Impact of Animal Advocacy.

Also, our good friend Heather sent this video, It’s Time to Re-evaluate Our Relationship with Animals.
