reitman-7I’m a writer, civil liberties advocate, online organizer, and facilitator.

Some key facts about me:

  • I’m currently the president of the board of directors of Freedom of the Press Foundation, a nonprofit I helped found in 2012.
  • I served as the activism director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation for 8 years then as Chief Program Officer of EFF for another 3.
  • I’m currently writing a book—more on that soon, I promise!
  • I’m passionate about press freedom, government transparency, financial inclusion, and human rights.
  • I run strategy and team-building retreats for mission-driven organizations through my consulting organization, Groundwork.
  • I serve on the board of the Filecoin Foundation for the Decentralized Web to help support decentralizing our technological world.
  • I run. And  sometimes backpack long distances.

This blog is designed to be a home for a mishmash of various topics that I find interesting—from backpacking to civil liberties, from nonprofit management to running, from feminism to online advocacy. I wanted a digital home to collect all the things I was working on and thinking about, and so I’m putting this up even though I recognize some of these topics may lack obvious connections.

You can also find me on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Note that I put this blog up on October 14, 2016. Anything that predates that was published someplace else originally, and I brought over a copy for archival purposes.
