News, views and what I choose to dos

I am an Internet author and consultant, based in San Francisco. I have written for years about technology, the Internet and Internet politics for a wide range of publications, most in the UK, from The Guardian to The Independent, The Register, New Scientist, Techworld and many more.

I am the author of – One Domain, Two Men, Twelve Years and the Brutal Battle for the Jewel in the Internet’s Crown. And for a while I was ICANN’s General Manager of Public Participation.
