I'm Erich (@guerrillaxvx). I'm in that weird place between finishing law school but before graduation. I research and write about technology and privacy in both criminal defense and national security issues. I've worked at the SF Public Defender's Office and EFF. I also teach operational security to high school students, specifically when it comes to interactions with police or ICE/CBP officers. One of the goals of this is so students can take the knowledge they learn back to their family members who may have issues with documentation, so they can also protect themselves and their homes from physical government intrusion.
Right now I'm writing a law review article on whether the Third Amendment (the one that says "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law") makes NSA's 215 program illegal. I'm moving to Germany in a bit, and am hoping to make more of a career out of research and writing on these issues, so I'm stoked to learn from everyone here!
