About the Gabriella Coleman Interview

I am out of here heading to a dental appointment (fun, fun, not). Happy to answer questions later so leave any here and I can get to them tonight!

Hi everyone,

I am Gabriella (Biella) Coleman! I am trained as a cultural anthropologist and I research, write, and teach on computer hackers and digital activism. My first book on Free Software, “Coding Freedom: The Ethics and Aesthetics of Hacking” has been published with Princeton University Press and I have just come out with a second book Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous out with Verso. I give a lot of talks on hackers, digital activism,open source production and intellectual property law.

I am looking forward to all of your questions related to my work and research so ask away!
