Collaboration with Latin American technologist/activists

From: user 1.

Hello,

Im fairly new to this list/group, yet have benefited immensely from the ideas/discussions Ive seen so far.    Thank you :)

Im currently overseas until September and unable to present this at a Civic Hacknight, so Im opting for this email instead to see if anyone would be interested.

Through my doctoral studies, Ive met and collaborated with several emerging civic technologists/graduate students in Latin America and East Asia.  Currently, there is a group in Chile and Guatemala currently developing an app that allows citizens to keep on top of the parliament's performance and initiatives. This would be the first of this kind of app for Guatemala.

These students/technologists are interested in collaborating with others, so if you are interested in these issues and want to offer expertise or simple advise as they go about developing these civic tools, let me know!

I would love to loop you into these discussions and maybe set up a few Google Hangouts along the way. 

Email me at: [address removed] for more info.

Best wishes,
Wilneida
