Snowdrfit.coop Advisors


Volunteer for various Free/Libre/Open projects, including OpenHatch, Software Freedom Conservancy, AcaWiki, Open Definition Advisory Council, autonomo.us, and the Economics and the Commons Conference and blogs.

As an autodidact, coder, idealist, philosopher, transhumanist, and writer, I have passed through a number of different vocations in life, across three continents as well as the Internet. I consider my most notable work to be my time as the first paid employee of the Wikimedia Foundation; my prolific writing on the subjects of security, programming, and open source software for TechRepublic as a regular contributor for half a decade; my development effort for a number of open source software projects; and my work as the co-founder and director of the Copyfree Initiative. Add to that my support of Snowdrift, and I hope that on balance, I am a net contributor to the betterment of the world in which I live.
