Defamation - LITIGATION CONSULTANT and EXPERT WITNESS for economic damages, emotional distress, social media, SM, mainstream media, blog, online, internet defamation, libel review, litigation support, false light, reputation repair, public/private figures, right to privacy, slander, libel, defamation repair.
Litigation consulting or expert witness testimony in defamation of character cases, including both libel and slander, as well as portrayal in a false light and right to privacy cases. When acting as a non-testifying litigation consultant I can also provide reputation repair for defamation victims/targets, leveraging 25 years of experience as a credible journalist and one of the first practitioners of search engine optimization.

My experience comes from the study of defamation law; 25 years in programming and online forums; being a CFO, financial software designer, and digital analyst; and hundreds of consultations with victims of defamation, most of them readers of my book Fighting Slander, published in 2003, 5th Edition available at https://www.amazon.com/dp/1737322528. I am familiar with most aspects of defamation, fro...

I am a professor of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech's College of Computing (a top 10 department in computer science). Prior to that, I got my Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University (from the #1 ranked computer science department in the country). I have previously worked as a researcher and technologist at Facebook, Google and Microsoft, as well as at a small technology start-up company. I direct the GT SPUD (Security, Privacy, Usability and Design) Lab. Our work, at the intersection of HCI, data science and cybersecurity, is oriented around answering two questions: (i) How can we design systems that encourage better cybersecurity and privacy behaviors? (ii) How can we design systems that shift power away from surveillance institutions and back into the hands of end-users? I've given talks on my research both USENIX Enigma and RSA — both premier venues for cybersecurity professionals — in addition to many top universities: e.g., Stanford, Princeton...
