I’m Stephen McLeod Blythe.

Stephen McLeod BlytheI live and work in Glasgow, Scotland, where I am currently a Community Guardian, on the Terms of Service team for WordPress.com.

Before that, I was Digital Marketing Manager for Amor Group, who have now been taken over by Lockheed Martin.

With an LLB. from the University of Glasgow, I’m in the process of completing an LLM. in Internet Law & Policy from the University of Strathclyde.

I feel at home online. I’ve got a particular interest in digital culture, and I am fiercely passionate about issues relating to freedom of speech, privacy, and governance of the Internet.

…I blame all of this on my parents for giving me a Commodore 64 when I was 4 years old, and wasting my childhood Friday nights on IRC servers.

Elsewhere, I take photos with old cameras, and (sometimes) make music with hacked apart Gameboys.

tl;dr? Watch this.
