More writing is coming down the pipe, but I want to take a brief intermission...

This past year, I made a resolution to get back into writing, and to try and make a positive difference in the world. To that end, I combined two of my passions - politics and technology - and decided that the focus of this blog should be digital rights and security.

To say that the community has been incredibly supportive and welcoming would be an understatement. - a local organization whose goal is to protect Canada's open internet - has been kind enough to share several of my articles with their own social media community, and has given me a lot of positive encouragement. I got to meet several members of that organization this past weekend at Media Democracy Days 2015. That event itself was a real treat, including a keynote from CanadaLand host Jesse Brown, and several other prominent speakers.

The implacable copyfighter Cory Doctorow also shared my article about municipal archives on boingboing last week, which was a tremendous honour. My partner was also kind enough to share the article with the libraries and archives community, who have responded positively on social media.

This has all been tremendously humbling, and it's imbued me with a renewed desire to keep on writing about frontier technology issues as best I can.

So, thank you.

That's all for now. Stay tuned!
