A beautiful run on any day, particularly early in the morning just before boats start to crowd the river. You can start the run from Bridge Street, to the left side of the Prezzo Italian Restaurant. Follow the foot/bike path down the river, past Jesus Green & Midsummer Common. Take the second foot bridge onContinue reading “Running the River Cam (UK)”
Not for the faint of heart–this run is up, up, up and then down, down, down on the return–a 19km or so loop into the hills and parks outside Brescia up to M. Maddalena. The long winding hill I chose started at the intersection of Via Panoramica and Via S. Gaetanino. I headed up onContinue reading “Running in & outside Brescia (Italy)”

There are a number of certainties about the gruesome crime, however, backedContinue reading “On Lawfare: A Proposed Response to the Commercial Surveillance Emergency”

Along with my colleagues, I’ve drafted some thoughts on the report here.

Once inContinue reading “Running the beaches of San Diego (U.S.A.)”
*”Rambling” isn’t quite the right word here. Think, rather, an ascent equivalent to or worse than a marathon due to altitude. One of the most beautiful and exciting multi-day walks of my life, and by far the hardest. Pounding headaches, seemingly constant dehydration, and utter exhaustion. It was worth each step. Changing flora, breathtaking views,Continue reading “Rambling* in Los Nevados National Natural Park & to the Peak of Nevado Del Tolima (Colombia)”

Over at Citizen Lab, we’ve compiled a page with some brief top-hits regarding litigation & formal complaints in the targeted surveillance industry. Another helpful resource is the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre‘s pages, which provide information on a company by company basis (e.g., Gamma Group and NSO Group).
