More de-press-ed conference, coverage by Andy Oram

Andy Oram had some coverage of the Boston event for yesterday's censorware press conference (again, I spoke here). His article is:

Internet filtering hurts those who are least able to protest it

Great write-up. And I'm happy to be mentioned:

One of the best spokesmen concerning censorware is the one who knows the code: Seth Finkelstein, who won the 2001 EFF Pioneer Award for deciphering several filtering programs. Seth is a crackerjack programmer who ought to be earning six figures somewhere. But the modest publicity he got for the EFF Award did not translate into job prospects, and he can't publish much of his research because he'll be sued by censorware companies angry at having their operations revealed.
