What kind of coder are you? (e.g. Junior/Senior Rubyist /Data Scientist, etc.) -OR- If you represent a social good organization, what is it called and what cause are you working on?

I am the co-founder and president of digital democracy - a nonprofit that empowers marginalized communities though tech to better their futures. We value free and open source tools and work with groups from at the grassroots to impact the grasstops.

Are you currently working on any projects that use technology for social good? If so, please share the website(s) so we can help, too!

We're working on a system to systematically prevent rape in Haiti as well as tools to securely document human rights abuses in repressive regimes.

Introduction

My name is Mark and I'm a hacker meets politico.
