Libya Elections

Libya Elections

In North Africa, Work on Nov 20, 2013

In a late-breaking development, I got a contract to work on a voting registration system in Libya. I’ll be here for two months building data analysis dashboards, reviewing technical infrastructure, and fixing issues as they come up. It’s the next part of my quest to learn more about international development, as well as do “good work with smart people.”

I am now out of Libya, and will be writing back-dated posts on my experience living and working there.

I’m not usually much into Christmas, being more of a winter solstice celebrant. But this year I’m feeling a little disconnected from family and friends back home. Luckily, we are doing all the things that keep us in the holiday spirit.
