Gary Wolf is an American writer, contributing editor at America's Wired magazine, and co-founder of the Quantified Self. Wolf earned a BA from Reed College, in Portland, Oregon, and an MA from UC Berkeley. Among his other Wired stories, Wolf wrote "The Curse of Xanadu," about Ted Nelson and Project Xanadu, calling the project "the longest-running vaporware project in the history of computing." Nelson objected the criticisms, referring to Wolf as "Gory Jackal", and threatening to sue him, and detailed his objections in a letter to Wired and a rebuttal. He also wrote an article about Steve Wozniak, "The World According to Woz". In 2007, with Kevin Kelly, Wolf co-founded the Quantified Self, a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self-knowledge through self-tracking. In 2010, he spoke about the movement at TED.
