Speaking

One of my favorite things I get to do as an internet academic and activist is talk to people about my work and hear their stories, thoughts, and ideas.  I love meeting new people and talking together about stuff that gets everyone in the room excited.

I’m always happy to talk about my current or past projects, particularly:

+The Coming Swarm, my book on activist distributed denial of service actions
+Activism, politics, and dissent on the internet
+Misrepresentation in public life
+The impact of data leaks on modern politics and journalism
+”Disruption”: its history, its future, its everything

If you’d like to have me speak to your class/conference/workshop/pizza party, drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
