'One of the blessings of being involuntarily retired is that I no longer
am beholden to any organization that I have to represent. I can speak
my mind fully without my opinions "reflecting back" on any group's
funding or reputation. Now I can analyze fully and with great detail
what I think regarding the theme and structure of political affairs, and
pass that on to you unfiltered.'
Shava Nerad has already done a great deal for all of us in a variety of
roles, perhaps most notably as founding executive director of the Tor
Project. After suffering some severe medical problems she is looking
for support to continue contributing productively. Please consider
joining in to help her keep helping us all.
