Hello World!

I am the new Chief Technologist at the Federal Trade Commission, continuing the blog steps of my predecessors.  I am grateful for the service of Ed Felten and Steve Bellovin. With the office developments they have left behind, I am able to blaze a new trail forward.

In this blog, I will report on interesting experiments and brainstorm on innovative ideas that may be thought provoking for the public, society, and stakeholders. My goal is to inform and encourage discourse at the inter-play between technology, personal information, and practices in order to advance innovation, competition, and consumer protection.

The content selection will be solely my own, and will not reflect any operational activities at the FTC, unless otherwise stated. The idea is to have a place for direct communication. So, stay tuned.

The author’s views are his or her own, and do not necessarily represent the views of the Commission or any Commissioner.
