Willow is an organic chat client, spanning a multitude of subcultures and putting like-minded (but differently disciplined) people in touch. This has led to a passion for hacker and maker spaces as places for education and indicators of resiliency in disaster. These places must be nurtured and pushed forward, to take a lead role in creating engaged citizens to take us into the future. Willow is a co-founder of Jigsaw Renaissance, a learning and making community in Seattle; co-founder and past director of Space Federation, linking together hacker and maker spaces; and currently directs Geeks Without Bounds, an accelerator for humanitarian projects.
