State of Civil Liberties Online: Danny O’Brien

Danny O’Brien is the Director of Strategy at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has been around since 1990. He describes it as the ACLU for geeks on the Internet as they’re made up of technologists, activists, and lawyers who are trying to preserve our civil liberties in digital spaces. I had a chance to sit down with O’Brien at the Decentralized Web Camp in July where we talked about the state of civil liberties online covering topics like encryption battles, the dynamics of decentralization, the balance between freedom and security, their approach to policy and laws, anti-money laundering challenges for cryptocurrency, challenging government surveillance, and the dilemmas faced by the centralization of power with companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple.
