NetMundial2014 Opening Ceremony Photos

This morning I just had to get up early to catch the opening ceremony of the Net Mundial in São Paulo Brazil, and it didn’t disappoint. There were a number of great speakers from Vint Cerf, to Tim Berners-Lee, to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. However, I have to say that my favorite was definitely Nnenna who speaks on the issue of internet rights for women, people in poverty, and those in developing countries like no one else does. I got to meet her personally at RightsCon in San Francisco and she is a total badass and a true inspiration. I was so happy to see her on stage right there are another amazing woman Dilma Rousseff signed Brazil’s Marco Civil into law. Check out the photos below…

"@nnenna ends with a shout out for all the women involved in net development, and finishes with a thank you to Ed Snowden #netmundial"
