There are three kinds of people who view my Blogs: Those who like it, those who hate it, and those who simply don’t understand. I am especially interested in this last category. I hope my Blogs will create conversation and reach people on a deeper level. I like to use metaphors and multiple levels of meaning to reach my viewer. If it makes them think and feel, then it is successful.”
The Citizen Lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto, focusing on research, development, and high-level strategic policy and legal engagement at the intersection of information and communication technologies, human rights, and global security. We use a “mixed methods” approach to research combining practices from political science, law, computer science, and area studies. Our research includes: investigating digital espionage against civil society, documenting Internet filtering and other technologies and practices that impact freedom of expression online, analyzing privacy, security, and information controls of popular applications, and examining transparency and accountability mechanisms relevant to the relationship between corporations and state agencies regarding personal data and other surveillance activities.
