Audio from the Archive

It's been a long time since my last post, but I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I've just been deep in thesis writing, as well as writing another paper on related topics. I hope to start publishing draft excerpts of my thesis here soon. In the meantime, I thought I'd post the following.

Last year, I produced a little audio montage for one of my courses. I'd completely forgotten about it until one of my classmates asked me for a copy. It's essentially a collection of clips related to contemporary internet policy debates, mixed over music by The Irresistible Force and Fila Brazilia.

You can listen to the MP3 here.
