I've been a passionate member of Care2.com for years under my "first life" name. This account is for my Second Life, where I am a piano craftsman, composer and scripter. Sue Stonebender is the name of my avatar within the Second Life community, though my real name is indeed Sue.

Much of my "first life" bleeds into the second, the former being driven by real world community capacity building, social justice and advocacy for kids at risk. I am a national journalist in Canada, and community technology strategist globally. Africa is at the core of much of my outreach, including a focus on finding innovative ways of applying technology to empower women and children. My current efforts focus is on combating the effects of extreme poverty (hunger, disease due to a lack of potable water and vaccines, child trafficking, AIDs) through technology-empowered innovations; child soliders; empowering children to change the course of AIDS through programs like Grassroot soccer; women's empowerment groups (such as Marcia Odell's WORTH program and Christina Jordan's LiA program); and also in working with young teachers to reclaim and rebuild schools and education in Darfur, Sudan.

Wild Fact About Me I am more than the sum of my pixels ~winks~
My Philosophy The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
What Gives Me Hope "We cannot change the past, but we can change our attitude toward it. Uproot guilt and plant forgiveness. Tear out arrogance and seed humility. Exchange love for hate --- thereby, making the present comfortable and the future promising." -- Maya Angelou.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why Milly Akinsulure ... because once I met her I could no longer turn my back and treat everything like just another headline on the news.

Quotation “This is the true joy in life: The being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. The being a force of nature, instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die -- for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” -- George Bernard Shaw.
