www.alexanderhanff.com Alexander Hanff is a globally respected privacy expert and advocate with a background in computer science, pyschology, sociology and law. For over twenty years Alexander has worked in the field of technology, specifically online technologies and has had a diverse career from technical management roles to training and teaching. In 2005 Alexander decided to investigate the impact of technology on society and returned to University to study these issues as a sociologist, then in 2008 moved into privacy advocacy full time after graduating in Information Systems and Applied Sociology from Lancaster University in the UK. Alexander cut his teeth running a campaign against Phorm, a corporation trying to enter the UK advertising market by using technology called Deep Packet Inspection to intercept citizens' web communications in order to build behavioural profiles which would then be used to sell advertising.

What Is Deep Packet Inspection? It’s easy to turn a deaf ear to the controversy surrounding recent copyright protection bills like the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) or the PROTECT IP Act, which threatened to curtail free speech on the Internet by allowing the U.S. Department of Justice to blacklist and block access to websites suspected of copyright infringement. Most of us don’t visit websites suspected of illegally distributing copyrighted material, so blocking us from accessing them seems harmless. But should your ISP ever be legally obligated to prevent you from accessing restricted websites, it will have to find a way to monitor your online activity, and that could cause your privacy to be compromised if your ISP employs deep packet inspection tools to keep tabs on you.

Is Major Censorship Happening on Reddit? How Glenn Greenwald’s Blockbuster Article Was Banned Over and Over I’m not a regular Reddit user. I signed up to try it last year because I noticed my site traffic exploded whenever one of my posts got upvoted on the forum. Since I never actually crossed over into a consistent user, I’m still trying to get my head around how the community operates. Headlines in recent days about the fact that Glenn Greenwald’s blockbuster article on the Intercept detailing how spy agencies work to intentionally ruin a person’s reputation using lies and false stories, was consistently being banned on the subreddit “r/news” have been making the rounds. For those unaware, r/news is a default subreddit which all users are automatically subscribed to, thus it generates a huge amount of traffic. It’s basically the front page news section of the 64th most popular website in the world (according to Alexa data).
