As I mentioned
a couple of weeks ago, 2013 is already shaping up to be a year in which
data protection is a key battleground. That's been confirmed by a
flurry of stories around Data Privacy Day, which was yesterday in case you missed it.
I have been a technology journalist and consultant for 30 years, covering
the Internet since March 1994, and the free software world since 1995.
One early feature I wrote was for Wired in 1997:
The Greatest OS that (N)ever Was.
My most recent books are Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution, and Digital Code of Life: How Bioinformatics is Revolutionizing Science, Medicine and Business.
