I am Tag. An informavore, activist and a free thinker. As a PhD student in Computer Science and a female Saudi activist , my main interests fall in the use and deployment of technology to address women's issues in Saudi Arabia. Thus, my blog is focused on -but not limited to- this area. I have been writing in blogs, social media and newspapers for a while but that was in Arabic (my native language). However, being in the UK now and doing my PhD in English, made me consider starting to write and blog in English. (This is a new blog, started May 2016)
