Hi, I'm Molly. I'm the author of The Coming Swarm: DDOS Actions, Hacktivism, and Civil Disobedience on the Internet. I'm a PhD student in Communication Studies at McGill University in Montreal, where I work with Gabriella Coleman researching disruptive online activism. I spend a lot of time thinking about hacktivism, internet regulation, internet culture, technology in the media, infosec, and the philosophy of technology. I'm a research affiliate the Berkman Center at Harvard and the Center for Civic Media at MIT, and former intern at the EFF. When I'm not talking about technoloy, I'm usually knitting.

Twitter is a great way into my brain these days.
