CBS Evening News: “Freedom Box”

Mar 7, 2011

In case you missed it, here’s a link to the story I did for the CBS Evening News about the so-called “Freedom Box.” It’s a combination of hardware and software designed to circumvent government or corporate control.

Jan 12, 2011

A belated Happy New Year– it was quite a holiday season with the birth of our daughter, finishing up the book manuscript and a revolving door of family. Truly memorable and delightful. Then it was time for the crazaziness of the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which I survived for the 10th time and covered for ABC, MSNBC and Details. Please check...
