Brendan O'Connor is the founder and DSS of Malice Afterthought, Inc., the security consultancy and software shop. When not doing client work, he pursues his own research interests in identity and privacy, wearable computing, autonomous aircraft, and emergency and failsafe communication, the last facilitated by his Amateur Extra ham radio license (K3QB).

He writes about life, work, and occasional points of intrigue at Times and Measures, participates in one form of a global subconscious at Twitter, posts photos on Flickr, shares interesting pages at Pinboard, uploads and critiques videos at YouTube, connects professionally through LinkedIn, and shares his work and code through GitHub. His GPG key is 0xB58EDA54, and a personal resume is available in PDF format. He's written one peer-reviewed conference paper for the ACM Computer and Communications Security Workshop on Digital Identity Management (ACM CCS DIM '09). He has also written an article for the American Bar Association's SciTech Lawyer.

Brendan lives in Madison, WI, where he also attends law school, and dotes on his two cats when he isn't consulting elsewhere in the world.
