Now read his columns from before it was cool.

Barrett Brown, a Dallas journalist/hacktivist imprisoned for threatening a federal agent, and himself the subject of a National Magazine Award-winning story penned by Tim Rogers for D Magazine‘s April 2011 issue, yesterday in New York City won an “Ellie” of his own.

The award came for a column called “The Barrett Brown Review of Arts and Letters and Jail,” which has been published since last July by the Intercept. Congratulations to him and to them.

If you’d like to read earlier installments of the column, written before Barrett sold out to Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras — when he was doing it for DMagazine.com primarily for the love of the game — you can find those here.
