Executive Director
Greater Seattle Area
Lisha Sterling has been supporting open source technology in low resource situations for the past 8 years. Before that she worked as a software developer and systems administrator at the usual string of startups and big tech companies starting in 1993. In 2016 she went to Standing Rock to see if the elders and community leaders there would like assistance with technology and basic infrastructure in the water protector camps (Oceti Sakowin, Sicangu, and Sacred Stone). She ended up spending nearly six months at the camps, leading a tech team that provided Internet services, cell phone boosters, radio programming, solar and wind power, and vital computer and cell phone security assistance.
