Welcome to my site. Here you will find some info about me, the things I do and a listing of upcoming (and past) presentations and lectures. While I initially expected most of my posts to be about Open Source/Free Software (hence the name), these days it's mostly rants and ramblings about running.

The Organic Internet

I'm very excited to have been asked to participate in authoring a book that combines a discussion of the politics of the internet with basic information on how the internet works.

The result of this collaboration amongst members of the Mayfirst/Peoplelink network is "The Organic Internet: Organizing History's Largest Social Movement". You can pick up a copy for $7.00 at lulu.com or download the pdf version for free.

The book features:
The Organic Internet by Alfredo López
The Political Techie by Jamie McClelland
Domain Names by Alfredo López
The Internet Protocol by Eric Goldhagen
Technical Architecture Shapes Social Structure by Daniel Kahn Gillmor
The Email Crisis by Jamie McClelland
FOSS and Proprietary Software by Amanda B. Hickman

Launching my new site

I long ago abandoned my site at eric.openflows.org.

After the split in the company I did not feel comfortable putting up new content there.

I've left that site online as an archive of my earlier digital self, and finally I found the time to setup a new site here at eric.openflows.com

I'm not sure how often I'll get around to posting content...
