After graduating from Seattle University with a JD Brian Rowe relocated out east to Washington DC to spend the summer fighting to ensure that IP law is benefiting the public through the free flow of information as a Google Public Policy Fellow @ Public Knowledge.
Brian is an IP junkie that reads Boing Boing, /. and XKCD for breakfast before breaking into an light afternoon snack of recent federal appeals court case and amici briefs. Brian's other projects include a legal internship at Creative Commons last summer, four years of work with the Washington State Access to Justice Technology Committee, and helping write Students for Free Culture's bylaws.
Before law school, Brian was a techie and web designer with a BS in Informatics and BA Political Science from University of Washington. Before academic pursuits called he even managed a Wizards of the Coast game store during the Pokemon craze, and to this day still plays too many games.
His mission at PK is still to be determined but projects may include; copyright reform, net neutrality, broadband, cellphone jaming, free culture outreach and anything else that helps ensure that IP is working in the interest of the people.
More of Brian's work can be found by following him on Twitter or identi.ca under the name: Sarterus or at the Freedom for IP</a,> a Seattle based IP volunteer org he helps run.
