About

And we’re back!

I ran this blog from 2010-2012 to write about digital rights, open source software and unlocked mobile hardware. I went on hiatus in 2012 to write a book, which ultimately helped me get a paid gig as a front-page blogger for the Howard Forums.

These days “open” for me has largely come to mean mobile—unlocked smartphones on contract-free plans and rooted Android phones with custom ROMs, that sort of thing. So when I write about it on Howard Forums chances are it’ll also be published here.

Comments are, as ever, welcome here. But the bigger conversation—among some one million smartphone enthusiasts around the world—is happening over at Howard Forums. So why not join in?
