Eric D. Dixon (1972—2019) was the Editor & Technology Developer for the Libertarian Party. He passed away suddenly in 2019, see Document: Memorial - A sad farewell to LP staffer Eric Dixon as printed in the October 2019 issue of LP News.


Dixon holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Brigham Young University, and although he originally planned to pursue a life in newspapers, he never got over his 1997 internship at the Cato Institute. He has since kept a foot in both journalism and public policy, working for Atlas Network, the Show-Me Institute, U.S. Term Limits, Americans for Limited Government, the Cascade Policy Institute, Liberty Magazine, the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association, the Idaho Freedom Foundation, and the Idaho Press-Tribune. In that time, he has worked as a writer or editor on dozens of academic policy studies; hundreds of op-eds, articles, briefings, and press releases; thousands of blog entries; and much more. He has also been designing and maintaining websites since the mid-1990s, ranging from complex data-driven institutional sites to smaller nonprofit and e-commerce sites. Recreationally, Eric is a film and music buff with impracticably sprawling collections, but that makes him a useful utility player on trivia teams. He lived in Falls Church, VA.
