Sonaar is CEO and Co-founder of Water Canary, which seeks to transform the fight against waterborne illness and water-related emergencies with realtime water-quality information. Water Canary is developing a simple open-source device that quickly and cheaply determines when water can't be trusted so that action can be taken to secure clean supplies, preventing the spread of pollution and disease. Sonaar is fascinated by the ways inexpensive networked hardware can be used as a tool for promoting social change, and how it might help empower people across the world with information.
