    io9 is a blog launched in 2008 by Gawker Media. The blog focuses on the subjects of science fiction, fantasy, futurism, science, technology and related areas.

    It is edited by Annalee Newitz, a former policy analyst for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and contributor to Popular Science, Wired, and New Scientist. Other contributors include Geoff Manaugh (BLDGBLOG), Graeme McMillan (Newsarama), Charlie Jane Anders, Meredith Woerner, Alasdair Wilkins, Cyriaque Lamar, Tim Barribeau, Esther Inglis-Arkell, Lauren Davis, Robbie Gonzalez, Keith Veronese, George Dvorsky, and Lynn Peril. Between October 2010 and January 2012 io9 hosted the Geek''s Guide to the Galaxy podcast, produced by John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtley.

    History

    In 2008, shortly after Newitz''s project, "other magazine," ceased print publication, Gawker media asked her to start a science and sci-fi blog. In an interview, Newitz explained the significance of the name "io9": "Well, io9s are input-output devices that let you see into the future. They''re brain implants that were outlawed because they drove anyone who used one insane. We totally made that (device) up to name the blog. The blog is about looking into the future and science fiction, so we wanted to come up with a fictional name, something that was science fiction." io9''s "Explanations" page gives further details on the fictional backstory of these devices.

    The blog is indexed by Google News. In February 2010, it was named one of the top 30 science blogs by Michael Moran of The Times ''​ Eureka Zone blog, who wrote, "Ostensibly a blog for science fiction enthusiasts, io9 finds space for pieces on cutting-edge technology, the wilder fringes of astronomy and the more worrying implications of grey goo."

    In 2012, io9 created a video series called "io9: We Come From The Future". It had 32 shows from April 13, 2012 through November 16, 2012. It was hosted by Annalee Newitz and Esther Inglis-Arkell. It was shown on the Internet television network Revision3 and on YouTube. The show discussed the latest news in science and science fiction.

    io9 was referenced in the American television series Dollhouse.
