It was my great pleasure today to visit the Yahoo! Campus in Sunnyvale, California. Yahoo! has an extremely active Business and Human Rights Program that supports a wide-variety of specific initiatives. In 2007, Yahoo! made a very generous contribution to Georgetown University to establish the Yahoo! International Values, Communications, Technology, and Global Internet Fellowship Fund. This Fund supports the work of the Yahoo! Fellow in Residence and two Junior Yahoo! Fellows– who are students in the Master of Science in Foreign Service Program (MSFS). This year’s Yahoo! Fellow in Residence is the brilliant, Evgeny Morozov. In addition to his research, Evgeny is teaching an MSFS course this semester on The Internet and Democracy.

Many, many thanks to Michael Callahan, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of Yahoo!, Michael Samway, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, and Ebele Okobi-Harris, Director, Business and Human Rights Program, for meeting with me today and showing me around the Yahoo! Campus. Michael Samway was a student of mine twenty-years ago, and it was great to see him again in Sunnyvale! We at Georgetown are looking forward to seeing the two Michaels and Ebele in April at a special Georgetown conference sponsored by the Yahoo! Fund and featuring Evegeny’s work!
