Tom Lowenthal is a technologist and activist committed to combating our contemporary cyberpunk mass-surveillance dystopia. By day, he's the staff technologist for the tech program at the Committee to Protect Journalists. By night, he practices robust self-care because mental health is important and burnout can be a killer. Tom's also a fellow at Stanford's Center for Internet and Society; he's previously worked at the Tor Project and Mozilla. He's a big believer in individual privacy, self-determination, and practical usable tools.
