I'm an activist, blogger and geek, living in Western Massachusetts and working as director of the Center for Civic Media at MIT, and a principal research scientist at the MIT Media Lab. I previously worked as a research fellow at the Berkman Center. As co-founder of Global Voices, I'm interested in ways that citizen's media can address longstanding biases in the news media. Before working at the Berkman, I helped found Geekcorps, a non-profit organization that shipped geeks to the developing world to run Internet technology trainings.

My personal blog is “My Heart's in Accra…”
