Harold Stark

An independent journalist with a penchant for the cutting edge, Harold Stark is usually described by his peers as overimaginative, whimsical and fun-loving. He likes pets, loves nature and has an obsessively unhealthy relationship with his technology, or so his therapist would contend.

Apart from technology and loads of science fiction, Harold also harbors great interest for classic literature, old and modern, pertaining to the genre of fantasy fiction. He grew up reading books like Harry Potter, His Dark Materials and the Inkheart Trilogy. He has never missed an episode of Game of Thrones.

You can read about him on his website.


A journalist covering the intersection of lifestyle, culture and technology, Harold Stark specializes in deep, insightful pieces that push through the limits of knowledge and encourage readers to think beyond the circles of conventional reality. For the six years that he has been working exclusively as a journalist for the digital era, he has drafted articles on everything from the ethics of artificial intelligence to the many opportunities of the internet of things. In the last three years alone, Harold has contributed to a roster of renowned media publications including Forbes.com, HuffPost and The Week.



Self-taught and home-schooled for the most of his early years, Harold obtained a bachelor’s degree in humanities at the New York University, with a focus on English Literature. He’s particularly interested in the advent and downfall of technological advancement throughout the ages, both in ancient and modern history. He reads a lot, mostly fantasy fiction, which he believes serves as food and water to a creative mind.
