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.

Co-authored with +Eva Galperin 
A few short weeks ago, we were conducting a security training for a group of journalists in Palestine. The journalists were deeply aware of the potential threats facing them—and by not one, but three governments—but didn’t have the first idea of how to mitigate against those threats. “It’s too confusing!”...

"Tor often gets a bad rap for its ability to enable criminals to operate anonymously online, but for many of its users around the world, it’s a necessity."

My latest, for the Kernel.
Since Edward Snowden leaked documents demonstrating the breadth of the National Security Agency's digital surveillance last year, the global conversation around Internet freedom has shifted from censorship to surveillance. Where once the focus was on China's Great Firewall or Iran's vision of a ...

Here are five ways you can put your money where your mouth is and support free speech:
While I'm tweeting, Facebooking, and otherwise making an ass of myself all over the Internet, lots of folks aren't able to do so, their speech limited by their governments either through network censorship or worse. Here are five great causes you can donate to to support free speech this holiday ...

The first thing I would like to say is my use of the Ubuntu logo and the word “ubuntu” in my domain name falls under nominative use. Although I'm perfectly within my rights to continue using both, I've decided to remove the Ubuntu logo from the website, but add a disclaimer—because it seems like ...
