Elior Sterling Elior
Elior Sterling is a life long proponent of software freedom. He spent the first 15+ years of his career working for companies like Wells Fargo Bank, Amazon.com and a string of startups you barely remember. His ideas about the importance of Libre software and hardware have been refined in the fires of civic and humanitarian projects that affect marginalized people on the outside of the digital divide. He has worked on software projects to improve public water service in Tanzania, environmental tracking in Guatemala, protection of indigenous lands in Ecuador and the US, and the protection of refugees in Jordan and Mexico. In recent years, much of his work has revolved around keeping vulnerable people (and their digital doppelgangers) safe while facing harassment from individuals, hate groups, and governments.
