Pace professor Darren Hayes is quoted in two TechNewsWorld articles. He’s increasingly turned to for expertise and comments in areas from computer security and forensics to mobile safety. In the article, “Lawyers Smack Sony’s Handas It Reaches for Hotz’s Hard Drive”, TechNewsWorld reports that his views include a legal opinion on a constitutional right “to read anonymously, and case law shows that this right extends to the right to online privacy.”
The second TechNewsWorld article Hayes is quoted in, “The Chinese Government’s Gremlins in Google’s Works”, features Hayes’ expertise on computer security yet again as he offers his knowledge of the internet restrictions in China:
“There are so many restrictions in China, from blocked websites like BBC News, to filtered searches,” Pace University’s Hayes told TechNewsWorld. “One Harvard study estimated that 18,000 websites are blocked from within mainland China.”
Even heavily censored Baidu, China’s largest search engine, isn’t clean enough for the Chinese government. Last month, government officials started Panguso, a government-sponsored search firm devoid of controversial references.
“At the end of the day, the Chinese government probably feels that they could simply set up their own email system, implement greater control of email traffic, in a similar fashion to how China has successfully developed their own popular search engines,” Hayes explained.
Some of the earlier articles Darren Hayes has been featured in include The Examiner, Nieman Watchdog, The New Yorker blog,Government Executive Magazine, TechNewsWorld, Flint Journal, POLITICO’S Morning Defense, and CNN.
