Hello world

We are people of enormous power and influence over the open web. I empower digital professionals to use that power wisely. I advocate for an open web built around international standards of human rights, privacy, accessibility, and freedom of expression.

I work for MaidSafe, but this is my personal site, and the content on it does not reflect the opinions of this employer, or any previous one (Open Rights Group etc).

Aside from my professional advocacy work, I’m the author of a forthcoming book on privacy being published by Smashing Magazine.

In the past, I ran a side blog on tech policy after Brexit. I did a bit of public speaking in my OSS CMS days.

I have opinions.

I’m no longer doing writing gigs, conference speaking, or contributing to open source projects.
