Jamie has been co-director of May First/People Link since it's creation in 2005, focusing primarily on the technology infrastructure and collaboration and organizing of technologists. Jamie has been an activist and organizer for the past 25 years, including 10 years as a member of the Paper Tiger Television collective. He played a critical role in the organizing of the technology teams at both the 2007 and 2010 US Social Forums.
What makes May First/People Link unique is the integration of technology with politics. We approach all problems as organizers and understand even the smallest technology issue as having a political dimension. We expect our technologists to be organizers and organizers to be technologists. This approach is responsible for our growth and successes over the past six years and I hope to see it continue to lead us in the future.
