Update #1

6 months ago

After more than 2 years of researching the business and data collection practices of a select number of US-based tech companies, I've finally decided to go public and seek the support of like-minded citizens who favor greater transparency over these out-of-control companies. Please join me in this monthly target so that I may transition this from a part-time to full-time pursuit. Thank you for your support!

More Info

In 2019, with what began as a very casual endeavor eventually turned into a part-time labor of love: To uncover the business and data collection practices of some of the largest US tech companies, to help better inform the ongoing public dialog about the future of this very important industry. Since then, I have been forced to make significant sacrifices to my time and my career, at times dealing with both physical as well as electronic surveillance in response to my work, and my ongoing communications with policymakers and other concerned groups. Now in 2022, I'm continuing my work by expanding my scope to help ensure that like-minded policymakers in the US and EU both have a much more informed perspective. With your help, I will transform this journey from a part-time, self-funded project, into a full-time pursuit. Please join me!
