  • Simon Perdrisat

    I am interested in the social and political implications of technoloy, and in particular of digital technologies. I believe that technology can and should be an emancipatory force but that it requires a relevant contextualization and a multidisciplinary approach. I have been active in the web industry for the last 10 years, and an advocate for open technology. I have always been committed to exploring how my skills can be used to foster a more engaged and participatory relationship between people using technology, in the spirit of an open source culture. After a BA in international relations, I am aiming to use my technical expertise, combined with a social science method, to approach these issues.

The chemical engineering incorporates a particular and intrinsic methodology of analysis-application that in my opinion facilitates and tends to the adaptability of the professional.
  • Salvador Aguilar Rabádan

    "Soy de los que ven un mapamundi y viajan gratis un par de horas. De los curiosos hasta aburrir, de los sabioncillos que saben de todo y de nada, recelo de lo absoluto. Me aparecen mariposas en el estómago cuando recuerdo Senegal, donde acompaño a unas valientes con sus proyectos empresariales a través de las microfinanzas y la paciencia. Cada día tengo más claro que la información empodera y que unas cervezas con los amigos no tienen precio."

  • Tomás Fernández

    I don’t quite like to define myself with my profession or my work. I consider myself an “Improneur” (an entrepreneur with the mindset of an improviser), because I work with what is emerging from the present and act guided by my intuition. I’m cofounder of Knowmads Argentina, actor, process facilitator (consultant) and manager of a star-up. One of my main drives is to “hack” other people’s mindset or thinking patterns that are not useful or helpful and replace them with new ones that make sense to them. I invite you to explore what we are doing as Knowmads Argentina and keep in mind that this global, open community is getting bigger by the day. Join the circle!
