First Look Media

IETF standards & research
S ’18

In the summer of 2018, I worked on the engineering and research teams of First Look Media, the parent company of The Intercept, primarily on authoring an IETF Internet Draft.

  • Worked to create an IETF Internet standard (currently a proposed standard) for OpenPGP cryptographic keylist subscriptions, as implemented by Micah Lee’s GPGSync. The draft is available here. (I am the primary/first author.)
  • Wrote an engineering blog post about the IETF project.
  • Worked with the research team to perform data analysis on several unreleased datasets.
  • Designed Presslist, a crowdsourced internal system to manage and track government contacts.
