Velo, Rapido | This is about a few different things.
Thoughts? I have a couple of conferences coming up; I always think my bio is cheesy. All bios are cheesy.
Amanda is the Technical Director of Gotham Gazette, a news and policy website in New York City, and a member of the steering committee of the Non-profit Open Source Initiative. She occasionally writes about software freedom and the role of proprietary software in movement-building organizations. Through the Welfare Law Center’s LINC project she spent three years working closely with grassroots economic justice organizations that wanted help making better use of information and technology tools, and collaborated with a group of fellow New Yorkers to develop a content management system that facilitated much of the organizing of protests and actions around the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. Amanda is part of the InterActivist Network an activist technology infrastructure and skills sharing project housed at ABC no Rio. She’s secretly more interested in greywater and urban ecological sustainability than in internet technology.
