"But even in areas where both men and women have something to say, men somehow crowd out the women in the popular discourse."

Story
Tagline
writer, activist, blogger.
Introduction
I'm a loudmouthed writer with an awesome job directing the Electronic Frontier Foundation's international free expression work.  I also write a regular column on technology, censorship, and activism for Al Jazeera English, and have been known to write for other publications, including The Guardian, Foreign Policy, and Global Voices Online, where I'm also a board member.

I talk a lot--here, around the Internets, and in real life--about free expression, privacy, anonymity, culture, and MENA.  I also talk about travel and post pictures of food. If you like cats, let me know: I have a circle for you.

Caveat: posts on Google+, or on any other social network, do not necessarily represent the views of my employers.  Furthermore, posts of links to external content do not imply endorsement, unless explicitly stated.
Bragging rights
I was once in a hip hop video. Also, Foreign Policy named me to their 2011 Top 100 Twitterati list.
