Palo Fabuš (1983) is a critic and theorist based in Vrané nad Vltavou near Prague.

Fabuš received Bc in applied informatics from the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University in Brno, and MA from the Department of Media Studies and Journalism FSS MU Brno. Currently he is a PhD candidate at Sociology Dept. of Charles University in Prague. In 2004-2005 he was the editor-in-chief of IM6 magazine. Curator of Zoom festival (2005, 2006). He worked as an editor of Literární noviny (2005-2008). Co-founded Jlbjlt in 2007. He taught Social Media course at the Department of Media Studies and Journalism FSS MU Brno and gave guest lectures at FF MU Brno, FaVU Brno, FIT VUT Brno, FAMU Prague, and AVU Prague. After seven years of living in Brno, he moved to Prague in 2009. Since 2009 Palo is an editor of Umělec magazine; since 2011 its editor-in-chief.

His interest in new media has evolved into research of wider contemporary culture having ridiculous courage to dabble at a variety of approaches such as sociology, media ecology and philosophy. His research centers these days mostly on the relationship of ICT and evolution of cultural values, attitudes, perception of time and conditional embracing of world. Allergic to dogs and cats.
