This is the personal website of David Sasaki. Everything I write here reflects my views only. And even those are likely to change. Friends call me Oso. And if we’re really close then you can call me Osito. (The longish and rather uninteresting story behind the nickname is here.)
I work for Omidyar Network where I try my best to support Latin America’s open government movement.
In prior chapters of this strange book called life I worked as a consultant with the Latin America and Information Programs of Open Society Foundations, directed research at the Technology for Transparency Network, was the founding director of Rising Voices, and worked for a few years as the Latin American regional editor at Global Voices, an organization that is still dear to my heart.
I currently reside in Mexico City, otherwise knowns as el DF. If you’re in the neighborhood and would like to grab a cup of coffee, please do drop a note.
