I work in the School of Journalism and Communication at The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. My research publications, journalism, and comment in the media focus on how the affordances and constraints of communication technologies interact with language, social action, and culture. I teach about the news and social technologies and internet culture and strategic communication.
I am the current Chair of Electronic Frontiers Australia. EFA has been fighting for digital freedom, access, and privacy in Australia since 1994. I was elected by the Board on November 25, 2013. I joined EFA as a life member and Board member in July 2012.
