Jillian C York really should’ve appeared in this slot before now. The director of Electronic Frontier Foundation is one of the leading voices on the impact of moderation on free speech and also co-convenes, with Dia Kayyali, a very useful mailing list for advocacy and campaigns related to online speech.
I’ve included her work and tweets in EiM countless times and now she has published a new book, Silicon Values
, looking at an online speech in the context of her own experience working on research and living outside the US. Jillian talks to Mike Masnick on Techdirt’s recent podcast
about how their views have evolved over the years. Can’t help thinking it’s like listening to Pele and Maradona talking about football. A must-listen.
