Chris Doten

Chief Innovation Officer

Chris Doten

I've spent the last decade bouncing among being a full-time IT geek, enjoying grad-school conversations about foreign policy, scrapping in the American politics, and working in the developing world.

I'm particularly intrigued by the blowback this connection revolution can have. The tech transformation isn't all positive: the same tools that help citizens communicate, mobilize and transform can help authoritarians repress, control and manipulate.

If you want to send me something securely, here's my PGP key:
