MemberEric Hellman

Eric Hellman is Co-Founder and President of the Free Ebook Foundation. After 10 years doing physics research at Bell Labs, Eric got interested in electronic publishing, started an e-journal, started a company, built linking technology for libraries, sold that company to OCLC and worked there a few years, started blogging (at Go To Hellman), and then started working to make free ebooks work for libraries and everyone else. Eric has been raising awareness about “privacy leakage” in the internet services of libraries and scholarly publishers and has volunteered with the Library Freedom Project to promote encryption for library and publishing websites. Eric believes that modern cryptographic tools must be widely deployed in the library and publishing industries to ensure digital privacy and security for all.
