Last month, I had the honour of speaking at the Pathways to Privacy Symposium, a privacy event sponsored by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and hosted by the University of Ottawa. The event featured many excellent presentations (the full seven hours can be viewed here). My talk focused on the recent emphasis on the need to improve oversight, a common refrain in reaction to both the Snowden surveillance revelations and Bill C-51, the anti-terro...

"... it’s not 'an anomaly' to see fraud accounting for about 6% of Apple Pay transactions, compared to about 0.1% of transactions using a plastic card to swipe...."

#ouch #apple
Some banks are seeing a growing incidence of fraud on Apple Pay as criminals exploit vulnerabilities in the verification process of adding a credit card.

Introduction

I am currently CTO for crowdfunding startup dana.io as well as the VP of Sponsorship for VeloFemmes Canada CCC

I am a co-founder of Free Geek Vancouver and have sat on several non-profit, progressive boards including the Vancouver Community NetBC Council for International Cooperation, Society Promoting Environmental Conservation, and the Artists' Legal Outreach Society

My technical expertise includes implementation of commodity and re-purposed hardware, open standards and free software - Ubuntu for servers & workstations, Android for tablets and mobile - as well as the Bitcoin e-payment protocol and social media strategy and web service development using the Drupal web community framework.

I have an abiding interest in martial arts, am an avid meditator in the Theravada Buddhist mindfulness tradition, and help maintain webservices for the D.I.Y. Dharma community and Birken Forest Monastery.

Philosophically I find the intregral vision as outlined by Sri Aurobindo, Ken Wilber, et al. the most compelling worldview. I am part of the team that developed metaintegral.org.
