I am Michael Geist, a law professor at the University of Ottawa, digital rights and freedoms advocate and advisor to EFF, SurfEasy and others. Ask me anything!
I’m a law professor at the University of Ottawa where I hold the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law. I write a weekly technology column for the Toronto Star and Ottawa Citizen, blog actively at michaelgeist.ca, tweet @mgeist, and serve on boards including the CANARIE Board of Directors, the Canadian Legal Information Institute Board of Directors, and the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s Expert Advisory Board.
I recently joined www.SurfEasy.com (a very cool privacy centric VPN provider) as an Advisor. If you have any questions about SurfEasy, the founder of the company Chris Houston is here as well. He's also brought some discounts and free account codes to hand out.
6:04 pm: Thanks to everyone for the discussion. SurfEasy’s provided a 20% discount code for all redditors, good until July 15th. Just use promo code bacon20
