Becoming a Public Interest Computer Scientist

Looking back on my experience as a Ford-Mozilla Open Web Fellow

In 2015 and 2016, I was an Open Web Fellow with the Ford Foundation and Mozilla. Over 10 months, I worked on the Internet 2016 campaign for Free Press, created NetPosi, a podcast about activism & technology, curated a list of digital tools for activism, and went to a lot of conferences.

To wrap up the program, I gave a presentation at Ford Foundation’s office in New York about my path to becoming a public interest computer scientist. Check out the video below.
