Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I am Technical Director at EchoDitto, where I work with socially responsible clients of all types and sizes to develop innovative online strategies and bring them to technical realization. I've been working with internet technologies since 1994, and some of my recent projects include the National Yiddish Book Center, the East-West Institute, and the NAACP LDF (all Drupal!).

Currently I'm interested in the new possibilities opening up due to the convergence of the mobile web, HTML5 and hybrid online/offline organizing strategies as well as the role that race and gender play in the culture and strategies of online activism.

I blog at and tweet as @eethann. Offline, I'm active in local organizing around food and environmental issues in Ithaca, NY, where I serve on the board of the GreenStar CoOp. When the computer is off I like to grow my own food and prepare it with my wife after a long hike before we go out dancing.
