Welcome to my new site!

I've finished my time at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and will therefore be publishing future work on this site rather than on the Berkman Center's servers. But old links should remain operational indefinitely, and I'll maintain a single listing of publications that includes my work there as well as subsequent projects.

Despite the change of venue, my substantive interests remain largely the same. In the coming months, look for new articles about Internet filtering (notable developments in Asia and the Middle East), about domain names (evaluation of new gTLDs, and documentation of the controversial practices still used by some registrants), and about pop-up advertising (programs like Gator and WhenU remaining in the spotlight).

I have also begun to think about my economics Ph.D. dissertation -- a major undertaking, of course, but a project I'm particularly excited about. I can't yet say precisely what I'll be writing about -- but I wouldn't be surprised if my articles included analysis of the domain name industry, of pay-per-click advertising, and perhaps even of online travel services. More details in the coming months.
