Adi Eyal (@soapsudtycoon) is a data geek working towards creating an open data movement in South Africa. He came over from the data dark-side, collecting personal data for nefarious purposes. He now believes the data can be used to encourage public discourse in a country with an historically disengaged citizenry. He is a co-founder of the Open Data and Democracy Initiative, an organiser of HacksHackers Cape Town and a member of the Open Knowledge Foundation Cape Town chapter.
