Video from my CCC talk last week is here.
I’m excited to present Satellite, a network measurement project I’ve been working on over the last couple years, at USENIX ATC next month. Satellite takes a look at understanding shared CDN behaviors and automatically detecting censorship by regularly querying open DNS resolvers around the world. For example, we can watch the trends in censorship in… Continue reading Satellite
I’m scheduled to give a talk at toorcamp next month about packet spoofing and SP^3.
I had the privilege last week of talking at the 32nd Chaos Communication Congress about the state of Internet Censorship in 2015 and the major developments in blocking and measurements last year.

What’s Up with Open HTTP Proxies
I’ll be giving a talk next week at CCCamp on the Open Proxy ecosystem, following up on some work I did last year looking at the operators, users, and traffic.
I’m quite excited to be talking at CascadiaFest this summer about the work I’ve been doing on scanning the Internet. My talk proposal is archived here. The cool end-results are still getting ready for publication, but one of the code modules I’m pretty excited about that happened in the process is ip2country.
I’ll be talking about what a civic hacking organization looks like at Linux Fest NorthWest in April. Code for Seattle is a brigade of civic-minded hackers. We’ll talk about how we’ve organized hackathons, a weekly meetup, and successfully navigated the government bureaucracy as a small group of volunteers.

Will Scott, a graduate student in the Networking Lab at the University of Washington, will continue his work on Activist.js, a tool that helps… Continue reading Open Tech Fund
