Mohammed Kambal

Hi! My name is Mohammed Kambal, an internet activist and a lobbyist, with deep interest in decentralized platforms and new organizations structures. I've also worked in similar projects like Wikipedia and open street map. Aside from this, I'm interested in Internet, culture and globalization. I founded a research project to better understand this area.

Michael Bernstein

I'm a Stanford assistant professor of computer science: I teach and do research on crowdsourcing, social computing, and human-computer interaction. I previously helped create Dynamo, a project to give crowd workers more voice. I've also been an active requester since 2009.


I'm joining this project as an online freelancer with two main goals:

  1. help stop exploitation and overexploitation of my fellow online workers (and have all workers get better and/or fair pay),
  2. and help create a platform that serves my first goal

If given a chance to serve in the Leadership Board, I would help promote synergy in terms of actions and decisions. As a forever Boy Scout (and former Scout leader), I love helping other people at all times, and for this project, I would like to help create a fair and far-improved platform - the best platform - for workers and clients alike.


I am Saiph, a researcher, activist, and technologist. In these three roles I have focused on empowering minorities to participate in the production of technology. As part of the board, I will spend my day fighting for your needs. It is part of my innate nature to fight for others. I will also ensure we produce excellent research and technology to support crowd work. Please vote for me! Vote for the change you want to see in crowd work!

Alison Cossette

I'm Alison Cossette a graduate student at Northwestern University in Predictive Analytics. I have been actively contributing to the crowdresearch project since it's launch this past spring. I am also the co-creator (with @Trygve) of this rapid prototyping governance experiment. I believe to best serve the future workers and requesters of the platform we need to test not only our code but our governance and operations. My professional experience ranges from Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs to award winning entrepreneurship (2004 Nat'l Finalist - Stevie Awards for Women - Technology Innovator of the Year). I believe this platform can have a significant impact on a global scale to address fair employment in the digital labor market as well be a tool to support economic development of requesters in all regions.

Martín Daniel

I'm a computer engineering student at UNAM. I'm good at listening to people and do the necessary to help them to resolve their problems. I think that knowing how to listen and engaging to help them resolve their problems is essential for the Leadership Board. Note that these are all tasks I deeply enjoy doing. If elected I will do all that is in my hands to ensure that your problems are resolved with effective proposals. P.S. I am a cat lover & will also ensure our research is always pet-friendly!
