Michael Cordover


Michael Cordover is a software engineer at Etsy. Last year he was a lawyer working in intellectual property, privacy and administrative law. He lives in New York City but lists Hobart as his home town on Facebook.

Michael grew up in the early days of the internet and he's seen the good, the bad and the ugly of an unregulated environment. He has a particular interest in the challenges that exist at the intersection of technology, community and the law.

Much to his relief, Michael has been found not to be vexatious under the Freedom of Information Act.
