Hi, I'm M. C. I use open data to watch the watchers. I run Transparency Toolkit, a non-profit that creates free software to collect and analyze open data on surveillance, censorship, and human rights abuses. I'm also a Thiel Fellow and an Echoing Green Fellow.
Before this, I graduated from Boston University in 2013 with a degree in civic technology and Boston University Academy in 2012. While in school, I did research at the MIT Media Lab, participated in Google Summer of Code, and was a member of the hackerspace BUILDS.
