Michelle Ventress (News Bureau)
Michelle hails from some remote barbaric part of the primitive Northlands otherwise known as Canada where she has to suffer a 10gb cap with no hope of relief from a third party ISP anytime soon. In a rare but pleasant combination, she is highly opinionated but also well informed about many matters in regards to digital rights and policy. Much of the foundation's early news stores came from stuff she was digging up faster than we could store and curate so now we've made the relationship official.

Mmmm, beer.
