Peter Wayner

Peter Wayner is a writer known for his books on technology and his writing in mainstream publications including The New York Times, InfoWorld,[1] and Wired magazine. His work on mimic functions, a camouflaging technique for encoding data so it takes on the statistical characteristics of other information, is an example of steganography.[2] In 2018, he wrote a highly criticized article about the New York City transit system, advocating for the eradication of subway trains.[3][4]
