About Eli Pariser
Online Organizer, New Organizing Institute, Brooklyn, New York

Shortly after the September 11 terror attacks, Eli created a website calling for a multilateral approach to fighting terrorism. In the following weeks, over half a million people from 192 countries signed on, and Eli, rather unexpectedly, became an online organizer. Eli was 20 years old at the time.

Eli has appeared as a commentator on Good Morning America, World News Tonight, The Colbert Report, and all of the major cable news channels except Fox News. His Op-Eds have appeared in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and other periodicals. Eli helped launch the New Organizing Institute, which has trained thousands of organizers to bring people together online and off for political change. Eli's book, The Filter Bubble: What the Internet is Hiding from You, was released in May 2011 from The Penguin Press

Eli grew up in Lincolnville, Maine, and graduated summa cum laude in 2000 with a B.A. in Law, Politics, and Society from Simon's Rock College. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
