Rebecca MacKinnon · September, 2011

I conduct research, writing and advocacy on global Internet policy, free expression, and the impact of digital technologies on human rights. My first book, Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom, was published by Basic Books in late January 2012. After leaving a 12-year career in China and Japan with CNN, I co-founded Global Voices with Ethan Zuckerman in 2004, and have been working on citizen media projects and free speech advocacy ever since. I currently serve on GV's board. For more about me click here.
