I had my postgraduate degree in Data Mining and Information Retrieval at the University of East Anglia. I am trying to challenge the old saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none". I have about 10 years experience in Software Development. In previous lives I used to work as an Information Security Consultant and Presales Manager. I also have been volunteering in Global Voices Online (GVO) since 2007, and currently I am local ambassador of the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN) in Egypt. Words like Open Data, Government 2.0, Data Visualisation, Data Journalism and Social Startups are like music to my ears.

This one is my non-technical blog. I write down my personal opinions about the different political and social issues. I also write there about the conferences I attend.
