This is where we collect stories and memories of a great person.
If you would like to make a donation in Michael's name, here are two suggested recipients. So far, Michael's friends have donated 215 euros to Refugees Emancipation.
The first, Chicas Poderosas ("Powerful girls"), is is a community working to bring Latina women in the Americas into the forefront of digital journalism, aiming to increase the number of Latina women working directly with newsroom technology. It's a cause that Michael was very close to; he travelled to Miami and to Bogota, Colombia, as a trainer.
The second, Refugees Emancipation, is an effort run by refugees in Berlin to set up internet cafes for other refugees. For the past 15 years, they have been working on establishing self-organizing internet cafes in residential homes and offer computer courses. It is supported by the Chaos Computer Club e.V., Freifunk Berlin and the Förderverein freie Netzwerke e.V..
