This is the personal site of Seth Porges.
I am a writer, editor, producer, and technology entrepreneur based in New York City. I am also the cofounder of the fashion-oriented iPhone app Cloth, which makes it easy to save and organize your favorite outfits and see what the rest of the world is wearing. Think: Cher's closet from Clueless, mixed with a real-time street style search.
I also write freelance for a number of men's and tech magazines and sites. Every once in awhile, I do some TV stuff as well.
Recently, I worked as senior editor at Maxim magazine, where I covered gadgets, gear, new products, cars, spirits, beer, and similar stuff. Prior to that, I spent many years as a technology editor and columnist at Popular Mechanics magazine and as the personal technology columnist at Bloomberg News. Prior to that, I worked as an editor at Men's Health.
I can be seen on four TV series that are in current rotation: National Geographic's "The '80s: The Decade That Made Us", Discovery's "How We Invented The World", a series of two-hour specials on History that began with 101 Gadgets That Changed The World, and a Military Channel series that explores the connections between disparate historical events.
I also occasionally appear on cable news and morning shows, usually to talk about technology, science, pop culture, and consumer products/gadgets. You can sometimes find me on MSNBC, Fox News, Fox Business Channel, CNBC, as well as some of the network morning shows. Years ago, I appeared on contestant on the game show Cash Cab.
My writing has appeared in: InStyle, Rolling Stone, Forbes, Self, Fast Company, Maxim, Men's Health, Men's Journal, Bloomberg News, Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Gawker, Gizmodo, Mashable, TechCrunch, and The Next Web.
Recently, I produced a documentary short series on the most dangerous amusement park that ever existed. (It's embedded below, if you care to watch).
I can be found on Twitter (@sethporges) and on Facebook.
In my spare time, I attend to travelers at my little Brooklyn-based bed & breakfast.
