Hi Nicolas, all:

I think that's a great idea, especially since we didn't have a formal introduction outside of the IGF 2016 sessions. Of course, many of the individuals on this list know each other well (and have worked together in some capacity for years). But many, like myself, are new to community networking altogether or simply to the community.

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Michael Oghia. I am an independent consultant, based in Belgrade, Serbia, working within the Internet governance ecosystem, but I work closely with Jane Coffin from the Internet Society on a variety of development-related topics, including community networks, Internet exchange points, and sustainability.

It happened to me today that Judith kindly supported my proposal for the CN videos, and I was surprised (and embarrased somehow) to find out that I don't recall her (or know her at all).

That made me think that there are so many people in this list that I don't know (and that they don't know me), so I would like to encourage you to share a little bit about yourself so we can understand who are we speaking to when we speak here :)
We should try to send this mail every now and then to ensure everyone that wants to be known is :)

So, respecting my own request, will do my homework and introduce myself, and you can use mine as a template if you want

My name is Nicolas Pace, I'm from Argentina, and my relationship​ with community networks comes because I am part of AlterMundi, an NGO that promotes CNs worldwide.


PS: this may also work as a meter on how engaged we are with dc3 :)
