My Fellowship at the Berkman Center
I have been awarded a fellowship at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, for the 2013–2014 academic year. I'm excited about this; Berkman and Harvard is where a lot of the cool kids hang out, and I'm looking forward to working with them this coming year.
In particular, I have three goals for the year:
- I want to have my own project. I'll be continuing to work on my research -- and possible book -- on security and power and technology. There are a bunch of people I would like to work with at Harvard: Yochai Benkler, Larry Lessig, Jonathan Zittrain, Joseph Nye, Jr., Steven Pinker, Michael Sandel. And others at MIT: Ethan Zuckerman, David Clark. I know I've forgotten names.
- I want to make a difference on a few other Berkman projects. I don't know what yet, but I know there will be options.
- I want to work with some students on their projects. There are always interesting student projects, and I would like to be an informal adviser on a few of them. So if any of you are Harvard or MIT students and have a project you think I would be interested in, please e-mail me.
I'm not moving to Boston for the year, but I'll be there a lot.

Well done, enjoy but not so much you don't get any work done ;-)
As for living in Boston, the center is nice compared to a number of other US cities I've been to, but I wouldn't want to spend more than a weekend or two at a time. However get out to some of the suburbs within cycling distance and I'd quite happily stay there till my beard grew long enough for me to cover all my shirt buttons :-)
