<h2 id="pono">Daniel Pono Takamori - Community Organizer & Non-Profit Problem Solver</h2>
 

	
 

	
 
{% endblock %}
 
<p>Pono joined Conservancy to help fill a community need for bridging technical
 
and non-technical roles. Having worked at FOSS foundations and organizations
 
for over a decade, his background in FOSS infrastructure led him to think more
 
deeply about how to better use community intelligence instead of technology
 
to solve governance questions. Having worked at The Open Source Lab, The Apache
 
Software Foundation and the Linux Foundation previous, he is quite versed in
 
the landscape of FOSS foundations. He is passionate about making FOSS a more
 
equitable and inclusive space. With a background in mathematics and physics,
 
he looks forward to mobilizing social intelligence and community governance
 
as a basis for solving both technical and non-technical problems.</p>
