Organizer, director of community development, and co-founder. My role bridges place-based community organizing and internet-mediated peer production. Check out the highlights of our community's development. For my emphasis on culture instead of rules, Will Ward has called me The Enforcer of Norms. Because the acronym for "have you considered sharing back?" (HYCSB) is not so catchy, other members of Public Lab have created these graphics to save me from repeating myself. Fair enough. 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:
