About Me

I’m Tristan Fitzpatrick, a former journalist turned digital communications staffer. I’m challenging myself to blog about progressive politics ahead of the 2020 election.

All opinions & sarcasm on the Fitz File are solely my own and do not reflect the views of my current or previous employers.

Selected clips of mine (outside of blogging):

A brief history of the internet. From its start as a Cold War defensive measure to the cat video sharing phenomenon that steals our time today. Science Node, February 2017.

From big data to big scandal. How did Cambridge Analytica go from data science and custom computing clusters to bribes and blackmail? Science Node, March 2018.

It’s time for D.C. to protect LGBTQ seniors. Now is the time to ensure all of our community’s elders are treated with respect, dignity and fair treatment under the law that they deserve after a lifetime of fighting for equal rights. Washington Blade, February 2020.
