Most of the time I live in Los Angeles, though I spend a lot of time in Tokyo too. I've run hackerspaces and blog networks, an art gallery, design firm and a record label. I'm one of the co-founders of Safecast, and currently act as Global Director. I'm a Shuttleworth Fellow, an MIT researcher and sit on the board of CicLAvia.
