From 1995 thru 1998, Maloney was the lead developer of UNET's KeepTalking web chat server.

In 1996, Maloney co-developed "DarkHorse: The Virtual Campaign Game" for MSNBC and Byron Preiss Multimedia.

In February of 2003, Maloney posted the video "Protesting the Protesters" to his website. The video featured street interviews at an anti-war protest in New York City. Although his site was fairly obscure at the time, several media outlets took notice, and within a day of his posting the video it was featured on "Special Report with Brit Hume". A day later, audio clips from the interviews were featured on Rush Limbaugh's radio show.

Since then, Maloney's website has become popular, receiving more than 5 million hits by the end of 2003 and logging over 6 million hits in 2004.

In late 2003, Maloney co-founded On The Fence Films, a film production company with entrepreneur Stuart Browning and entertainment attorney Blaine Greenberg. Their first release, "Brainwashing 101" is a short documentary analyzing the political environments on three college campuses: Bucknell University, the University of Tennessee and California Polytechnic. The film was named one of the "10 Best Documentary Films of 2004" Fact|date=May 2007 by the Liberty Film Festival, and John Fund of "The Wall Street Journal" reported that it was "the clear favorite of festival attendees" at the American Film Renaissance.

In the fall of 2005, On The Fence Films released Maloney's follow-up film "Brainwashing 201: The Second Semester", another short film focusing on higher education. "Brainwashing 201" has only been screened once, at the Liberty Film Festival, where it won the award for "Best Short Film of 2005."

On The Fence Films released "Indoctrinate U", the feature-length follow-up to "Brainwashing 101" and "Brainwashing 201: The Second Semester", in April 2007.
