Sara Moreira · August, 2010

Exploring common, new grounds that lie in the border between computer engineering (my education) and journalism (my practice). Clues: informatics, information, (open) data, communication, networks, communities, digital inclusion, (free) digital culture, activism and social transformation.

Check out this chronology of some of the things I have done in the last few years including speaking, training, organizing events, learning permaculture, travelling and having fun while connecting with people in Timor-Leste, Mozambique and around the world. You can also follow me on Twitter (@saritamoreira) and check my Linkedin profile. PGP: 0x6023D406
