Freedom lover, cautious technology optimist, consumption and food activist.

My heart lies with the poor and oppressed of the world. Social justice, both locally, nationally and on an international scale, and the threat of climate disaster are my main concerns. I believe we need sharing and collaboration on all levels to meet these challenges: Open data, open standards, Free software, Free culture, fully exploiting the democratic potential of the free and open internet, transparency in business and politics. All of this is needed, and more.
