September 30 to October 2 was PeaceTech Exchange: Islamabad, an event where PeaceTech Lab connected small peacebuilding non-profits based in Islamabad to low-cost, easy to use tech for their work on preventing radicalization and violence. I ended up training on engageSPARK and helping participants use SMS and IVR to communicate with their audiences.
This month I launched the PeaceTech Wiki, a free learning resource hosted by the PeaceTech Lab. The Wiki will be incorporated into the Lab's PeaceTech Exchange program as a way for peacebuilders around the world to learn more about the tools that apply to their work. Getting it up and running required installing MediaWiki on an AWS instance, integrating extensions like Semantic MediaWiki, fun stuff like logo design, and hard stuff like data structuring. It'll be a long process, but my goal is for the wiki to become a powerful tools database updated by technologists and peacebuilders alike.
