Ethan Zuckerman uses data to shine a light on the affronts of censorship. A passionate advocate for free speech in the developing world, Zuckerman is director of the Center for Civic Media at MIT. Current projects include the study of tools for censorship circumvention and the Media Cloud framework for the quantitative study of digital media. Zuckerman is the founder of Geekcorps, a technology volunteer corps, and cofounder of Global Voices Online, an ever-growing network of international citizen-bloggers. Whatever is going on geopolitically this fall, Zuckerman will give insight into the interplay of established and social media and their relationship to shifting power structures.
