Please post a short describtion about yourself and your experiences in this field.

I have a background in engineering, community organizing and NGO mgt (from Finland). I've lived in DC since '03 and am currently working mostly with World Bank on Africa energy issues. Knowledge mgt & ICT related issues are my long time passion.

Would you be interested in presenting to the group?

Yes. I've been developing a concept for creating a truly open & free platform for building a global & inclusive platform for sharing knowledge in the international development field. Not "just" one sector/field but all; like Wikipedia - but more.


Passionate about making development more open, participatory and all the good things with the help of smart ICT. And actually making it. Looking forward to good meetups.
