- Alexander J. Urbelis
I am attorney, writer, and radio and television personality, who focuses on issues of information security, privacy, and Internet governance. I have long been a member of the hacker and information security community in New York and am a producer on WBAI’s weekly technology-focused radio show with Emmanuel Goldstein, Off The Hook. In addition, I am one of the core organizers of the Hackers on Planet Earth Conference (HOPE) that will be happening this July in New York.
ISOC-NY was critical to HOPE in 2016 and provided the much-used streaming services for all major talks. Should I become a director of ISOC-NY, I would devote much time and attention to involving ISOC-NY in additional outreach via WBAI and would endeavor to raise ISOC-NY’s profile and role in the upcoming HOPE conference. It goes without saying that I also believe I could provide legal analyses and guidance on issues of critical importance to ISOC-NY and ISOC generally.
