My Master’s thesis, successfully defended (without revisions) in February 2014. It deals with the possibilities that internet technologies have opened for public and anonymous public speech, and their impact on deliberative democracy. It is multidisciplinary and draws both from a technical knowledge of internet security and from political philosophy both ancient and modern. Supervised by Prof. Leah Bradshaw.
