PogoWasRight.org is my attempt to increase awareness of privacy news and issues. The site is not affiliated with any Pogo or Walt Kelly enterprises or web site. If you are looking for the official Pogo web site, it is at PogoPossum.com. Please send them my love.
PogoWasRight.org was born in 2006 because I wanted to expand the privacy news and issues coverage that I had been providing Cotse.net and then for TheMissingAmendment.org. Working with co-founder “Ziplock” who provided invaluable help, we chose the name PogoWasRight because I am a fan of the cartoon character and we agreed that his “We have met the enemy and he is us” applies equally well to privacy as it did to the environment. Ziplock eventually dropped out, but this blog never would have gotten off the ground without him.
This site does not accept any advertising or political sponsorship. If I promote or recommend a site, it’s because I believe that they are worth promoting and for no other reason. This site does receive non-monetary assistance from Covington & Burling, who have provided pro bono legal services when needed. I am deeply grateful to them for their help.
When I am not working on this site or my other sites, I am a licensed health care professional. I choose to remain pseudoanonymous on my privacy sites for a variety of reasons, none of which have to do with avoiding accountability.
In July, 2016, I gave an interview to vpnMentor about this site and my views. You can read it here.
