[BLOG UPDATES]

Hey all. I usually autopost my new blog posts to Twitter and ADN automagically, but since I have to do it manually here it sometimes I forget. Here is a list of my most recent writings:

Ignite SF
=======
A selection of short talks from the Ignite event we attended in San Francisco last year. I highly recommend them all!

What your telecom provider knows about you
====================================
I petitioned Shaw and Bell for my personal information to see what they know about me. What came back was surprising. [This post has been featured by OpenMedia and Citizen Lab and the general privacy community on Twitter. There will be follow ups as the investigation continues].

Reset the Net

Getting ready for the net protest on the 5th.

=========================================
I give a little tour of startups in the field of investigative journalism, one of the really "hard problems" of our times.

I have also been doing a lot of writing over on our company blog if you want to peruse that: http://www.predicative.com/blog/?author=534dd078e4b0c0645e806a96

So... LOTS of writing recently. It has been wonderful. I have another piece coming out soon, but it is too early to announce it just yet. Stay tuned!
