After wandering the earth for many years I presently live in Washington, DC where I run the Ranking Digital Rights project, based at the New America Foundation. My first book, Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom, was published in 2012.
Before moving to Washington DC in 2010 I was a visiting fellow at Princeton's Center For Information Technology Policy. In 2009 I was an Open Society Institute Fellow. In 2007 and 2008 I taught online journalism at the University of Hong Kong's Journalism and Media Studies Centre. From 2004-06 I spent three years at Harvard, mainly as a research fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, which is where Ethan and I started Global Voices.
Before all of that, from 1992-2003 I worked for CNN in Asia including as Bureau Chief in Beijing and Tokyo. I covered stories from Taiwan to Korea (North and South) to Pakistan. I'm fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
