My name is Anne Halsey and I am the newest of the PK summer interns. I started at the beginning of July and have been getting up to speed on a variety of issues, some of which I’ve worked with before and some of which are new to me. I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my summer in DC working on issues that are near and dear to PK and to me!
Like Anjali, I’m also new to Public Knowledge, although not to DC summers. During and just after college I worked for One Economy Corporation, also in DC, on increasing access to the internet for under served international communities. Working for One Economy brought home just how vital the internet is, and how intricate and interesting tech law and internet law in particular can be.
After One Economy, I spent two years working in my native California, rebuilding the engine and transmission of a 1967 Porsche 912 and even racing in a few vintage events. But even fast cars and temperate weather couldn’t keep me away from law school, and so I moved to Virginia to start law school at Washington and Lee.
I’m very excited about the chance to blog on hot topics and will look forward to contributing to the PK blog.
