Gadfly Petrel (Pterodroma)
Gadfly Petrel很高尚，她希望自己的工作能够让信息通讯完全服务于个人的需求而不是服务于商业企业谋取利润。虽然这个目标并没有现成的答案或指引，但是如果对技术的创新和应用加以适度调控，那么服务于人的需求这个目标就能逐步推进。虽然Gadfly Petrel是海鸟，她已经迁徙到了内陆并学习和教授新闻学，希望此一工作能培育出新一代的Gadfly。她这位美女的其它兴趣包括协作式生存，园艺和做牛排，不仅如此，这位美女信仰网络内容自由分享并经常拿盗版开涮。
Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus)
Roadrunner is a long-legged, ground foraging bird in the cuckoo family. Originally indigenous to the North American Southwest, this specimen is currently enjoying being out of the desert and soaking up the moisture of Cascadia. He spends his days as an anarchist hacker, Debian developer, and dad. Around Riseup headquarters, it is commonly known that Roadrunner is a beast with hardware.
Feral Rock Pigeon (Columba livia)
Pigeon has been pecking along the sidelines of the Riseup collective since the beginning, and finally joined Riseup a couple of years ago. She is not a geek, but finds them strangely fascinating. When not working on the newsletter or approving lists and emails, she is a social worker, a young adult scifi writer, and an egalitarian community enthusiast. She believes the future is unwritten, and everyday we write the book.
Rook (Corvus frugilegus)
Rook stands in the corner, and works on a strong defense. Although Rook's home is typically eurasia, Rook has mostly lived in the Pacific Northwest, although there were several periods of time spent home working. Rook helps make tools that other birds use to hack at the intersections of kyriarchy, from "cissexism":https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cissexism and heterosexism to racism, in the world at large and within the social justice movement itself. Rooks voice often seems harsh to many, and so tends not to speak up much. Rook likes to eat fresh veggies, so grows many.
Snow Owl (Bubo scandiacus)
The Snow Owl sits perched high on an icy branch, peering from afar at the insides of Riseup machines to find little bugs to snack on. He helped start Riseup when living in Seattle because he was dismayed by all the activists who showed up to shut down the WTO with their hotmail and yahoo accounts. He works hard keeping Riseup servers running, the network fast, and the spam from polluting your inbox. His other activities include reading and writing books, and winning strange and puzzling awards. He helped build the technical infrastructure for Indymedia, and currently contributes by maintaining some small pieces. Snow Owl is also one of the nicest people on the planet.
Starling (Sturnus Vulgaris)
Starling is a migratory bird with stars on his wings and a feisty cry. He works on developing Riseup software and keeping people accountable and on task. Starling is interested in building movement infrastructure, tactics, and strategies for the long-haul. Starling is equally comfortable plucking eyeballs from skulls as defecating from on high.
Sunbird (Nectarinia asiatica)
Sunbird has called the Pacific Northwest home since 1998, but took a hiatus from the United States for two years, living abroad in Lahore, Pakistan where he studied Urdu and volunteered for the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. For his day job, he is a legal worker focused on protecting the rights of immigrants and refugees. Sunbird also has a strong interest in internet law as it relates to privacy and freedom of expression. He joined the Riseup collective because it is essential for activists to have communication tools that we can trust. You may find Sunbird on IRC, answering your help tickets, struggling to learn Debian and dreaming about a future free of AOL. Sunbird's gpg key ID is @0xD45523676ED610B7@, available from your local keyserver.
Tufted Puffin (Fratercula cirrhata)
Tufted Puffin is medium sized sea bird and a member of the Riseup collective. She nests in Seattle, which is pretty far south for a tufted puffin. Tufted Puffin spends much of her time in front of a computer, using flashy interfaces like pine, but she likes to go outside too. She gets around by biking or swimming with wings which have adapted to offer her a flying technique while underwater. Tufted Puffin appreciates learning tech skills from Riseup and other radical tech projects and, more importantly, helping to build alternative infrastructures.
