Will Scott


Information Controls Fellow


As a Senior Information Controls Fellow, Will Scott worked with the University of Washington to release Activist.js, a tool that improves censorship resiliency for website owners.

Once integrated into a website, any user who can access the site once will be able to access it again even if it is being censored. Activist.js is live and includes a wordpress plugin for the millions of websites relying on the platform. Will presented his project at CascadiaJS. He also focused on censorship measurement detection, discussing open proxies at the Chaos Communication Camp and the state of Internet censorship at the Chaos Communication Congress.
