Public Speaking

I'm available as a public speaker on a variety of topics.

I have a Patreon, here, where you can subscribe to support my security and systems-focused writing.  You sign up for a fixed amount per essay (with an optional monthly cap), and you'll be notified every time I publish something new.  At higher support levels, you'll get early access, a chance to get in-depth answers to your questions, and even for more general consulting time.

If you like the work I do, you can also support it via Flattr:

Hire Me!

I've been giving talks on a monthly basis in venues around the world since 2009.  I've spoken at everything from large technical conferences like O'Reilly Velocity and the annual Chaos Computer Club Congress, at The Conference in Malmö and FutureEverything, at political events like Electronic Frontiers Australia's annual privacy summit in Federation Square in Melbourne, at universities including Harvard and Yale, at the London ICA, Creative Time's annual summit, and at smaller commercial events like J.Boye and HartmanEvent.  While many of my talks are given for the sake of the communities I'm part of, you can also book me as speaker.

Subjects I can speak on include:

  • Infrastructural futures
  • Urban design
  • Privacy and human rights
  • Design for participation
  • Security design
  • Threat modeling
  • Secure development lifecycles
  • Operational security
  • System aesthetics
  • Network politics

Here's a talk I gave with Quinn Norton at 30c3, “No Neutral Ground in a Burning World”:
