Here’s my attempt at an archive of where I’ve been quoted, appeared in audio/video, and where I’ve written op. ed. pieces or guestblogs. This is just a fraction, though, really. I can’t keep up.
You might also be interested in a gallery miscellaneous photos of me at public events on FLICKR.
And then there’s a board I made at Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/ctanwriter/cecilia-tan-publicity-and-profile-photos/
