He is Yale Law Fellow as part of their Information Society Project. He is currently is a columnist for various syndications including the National Review, the Altantic and Bloomberg View. He has spoken at the Consumer Electronics Show as a technology expert and will be speaking at Freedom to Connect and the Conservative Political Action Conference. Derek was referred to as a “rising star” in the party by David Brooks in the New York Times. Mr. Khanna continues to be a major thought leader on technology issues and disruptive innovation.

Derek has also spearheaded a campaign to reverse the recent decision by the librarian of congress that made cellphone unlocking illegal. His articles in the Atlantic received several million hits. He has then spearheaded an advocacy campaign that got over 100,000 signatures for the White House to address this issue.
