hello there, i'm Nettra (pronounced according to spelling: net + tra = nettra).

i'm a global nomad and digital native currently based in Lausanne. i was born in California, raised in Phnom Penh and was a passionate flâneur in New York City and Paris.

i am a former political scientist keen on helping diverse stakeholders work together towards sustainable solutions to poverty. learning about the impact of technology, entrepreneurship and creativity on society is what gives me energy. i am so happy to have the opportunity to do this everyday at EPFL.

this tumblr helps me keep track of things which have happened to me, as well as the interesting, funny, inspiring and beautiful links i find this on this internet odyssey.

Occupy Wall Street Sex: Sex and Love at Zuccotti Park - Metropolis - WSJ

Great angle for a story. Especially:

Like almost all of the supplies used by the protesters, the Occupy Wall Street condoms were a gift from a benevolent donor. Not long after the demonstrators took root in the park last month, Barnwell said a man arrived with a supply of hundreds.

The unnamed donor did not express solidarity with the movement’s economic message.

“He was concerned with overpopulation,” Barnwell said. “I thought he meant in the park, but I guess he meant in the world. He said, ‘Just make sure people aren’t breeding.’”
