| I am a 45 year old lawyer cum consumer advocate, who wears the epithet of   |
| "geek" as a badge of honour. I grew up in Perth, Western Australia, and     |
| currently live in Oakland, California, across the bay from my job in the    |
| international team at the Electronic Frontier Foundation where I work on    |
| issues such as intellectual property, trade and Internet governance.        |
|                                                                             |
| I used to have a personal timeline at this point, but as I get older it is  |
| growing alarmingly, so I have moved it. The edited highlights include my    |
| marriage to the equally geeky Dominica in 2006, the birth of our sons       |
| Doyle and Leonard in 2007 and 2010, the dates I began my businesses,        |
| Terminus Network Services in 1998, iLaw in 2000 and Malcolm Media in 2006,  |
| my move to Malaysia after finishing my PhD in 2008, and my latest move to   |
| the United States in 2014. Look at my resume if you really care.            |
|                                                                             |
| Outside of hours I've been involved in science fiction fandom (straying     |
| into related genres such as fantasy, horror and anime), and acting in       |
| amateur theatre, short and feature films, and television. I have a Bacon    |
| number of 3 from acting as an extra in a Jet Li kung fu film (video/        |
| screenshot). I also wanted to be a professional writer, but of the two      |
| novels I started one was rejected and the other abandoned (though I did     |
| write and produce a play).                                                  |
|                                                                             |
| I have achieved many of my life goals already, but my remaining ambitions   |
| are to learn C (and Swift), to get a professional certification in Linux    |
| administration, to write an original science fiction novel, to learn to     |
| juggle and to learn Japanese (ideally both at once).                        |
