Organizer, director of community development, and co-founder. My role bridges place-based community organizing and internet-mediated peer production.

Feel free to edit my impromptu Talk page, find me on twitter @lizbarry, check out my web 1.0 homepage, or go ahead and .

I like playing outside. Here's me flying stuff over New York City:
