Jack is a dedicated and indefatigable Democrat who has spent over four decades as a member of the D.C. media, working for Washingtonian Magazine and The Washington Post Magazine as well as other publications. He is an expert on technology policy, part of the “geeks” who almost took over the world and briefly represented it on the Senate Commerce Committee. Jack’s advocacy for Internet freedom and openness culminated with his EPIC protest and ultimately, his 20 year tenure in the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Jack co-authored Washingtonian’s cover story on the Internet Freedom Act of 2015. Jack held a senior technology policy position at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, also developing technologist training programs, before moving to information technology writing.
