The Current



The Current, a CBC Radio show, aired a segment on the OpenNet Intiative and the Citizen Lab today. Ron Deibert, Rafal Rohozinski and I were all interviewed. It was a somewhat wild ride of disparate tales including apparent milions of dollars of funding from George Soros (we are funded by OSI but not with millions), Rafal’s sobering screwdriver story, my apparent breaking into foreign computer networks the moldy sandwich in the Lab’s fridge and a soup con of porno. But interspersed in all of it was a good sense of the work the ONI/CL does with Internet censorship/filtering and why I call my self a hacker in the original sense of the word (and no I don’t mean “someone who makes furniture with an axe”). Listen to the rather lengthy show here.
