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.

I'm a historian, curator, teacher and designer living in Ottawa. In 2003 I completed a Harvard doctoral dissertation on the 18thC origins of the catalogue raisonné. Then I taught at Stanford University in California from 2003 to 2005. For the next six years I was Curator of European & American Art at the National Gallery of Canada. These days I'm involved in a variety of research, teaching, advocacy and design projects. For more information visit my web sites, including my personal blog ( which includes links to my writing, speaking, teaching and curating work; Design Incubator ( featuring work produced by students in my recent design class at Carleton University; and Slow Ottawa (, a guide to sustainable living in Canada's capital.

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.

That job was abolished in 2011, 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). My main focus these days is, which offers goods and services to Canada's small museums and heritage sites. It is going to be good.
