I’m Willow Idlewild. My friends call me “bloo,” and it just kind of stuck. Some people even call me “Wil.” On the internet, I’m willowbl00 (with two zeros).

Most of my work is at the overlap of humanitarian/disaster response and technology. I believe that affected communities are always the first responders, and by listening we increase equity, justice, and surge capacity.

I’ve been known to rant about hackathons, network effects, distributed response, multimodal communication, and encryption.

Ways to be ambiently aware of me, if direct action is not needed.
