I write about information politics and international affairs, and am the author of eight books, including The Managed Citizen, the Digital Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy, and Pax Technica: How the Internet of Things May Set Us Free or Lock Us Up. I have won multiple “best book” awards, and his research and commentary writing has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, and many international media outlets.
