Jeremy Hammond vs. the State


I concocted this bit of agitprop after reading an important op-ed detailing the US gov’s troubling War on Reality. The article contextualizes this proposal outlining the very naughty tactics of Team Themis, a consortium of information security firms enlisted by the government at arm’s length. Further details on the Hammond debacle here.

Steal it & spread the word.

RIP Aaron Swartz.

Howdy …

I'm a researcher, designer, advocate, and half-time parent living car-free in Ottawa. After completing a doctoral dissertation (Harvard '03) on the 18thC origins of the catalogue raisonné I pursude a postdoc at Stanford University until 2005. For six years after that I was Curator of European & American Art at the National Gallery of Canada, where I overhauled twenty galleries and spoke my mind.

That job was lost in a wave of 70 NGC abolitions, so I'm now doing the austerity thing, putting bread on the table with with occasional federal contract work plus some design teaching ( I'm the sole proprietor of Slow Ottawa ( / @slowottawa), and I'm working with some Berliners on a McLuhan archive project that also makes no money.

In May 2015 a friend and I will launch a line of traditional, sustainable cleaning products as part of an ambitious new enterprise ( offering goods and services to Canada's small museums and heritage sites. It is going to be good.
