A tribute to James Dolan who has tragically passed away at age 36:
"It was with an extremely heavy heart that we recently learned our friend and former colleague James Dolan—one of the co-creators of SecureDrop and Freedom of the Press Foundation’s first full time employee—took his own life over the holidays. He was 36.

My Grandad's advice for safe driving was: "Always remember you're controlling a potentially lethal weapon". I think it helped me to take driving even more seriously.

"Always remember you're designing a potential system for mass surveillance".
"Always remember you're deploying a potential tool for mass social unrest".
