The people behind Peng! are hard working and highly professional. The inner core is small, but there are more than 100 people in the extended network, having all kinds of backgrounds: science, media, politics, art, craft, public service. We also hire external specialists to work with on specific campaigns.
Claire is the virtual member of the Collective, only known through several false names and avatars. She is a security expert and has access to a number of classified databases which have provided crucial information for the most delicate Peng! actions. During collective chat-meetings, she usually plays online versions of Go, an old Chinese strategy board game. According to what we know, she has two dogs, a cat and a koala bear.
Jessica is a mechanical engineer and once owned a monsterbike workshop in Rajasthan. She married and divorced a German and set up an electricity sharing collective in Berlin that redistributes electricity bills through physical hacks into households and databanks. After a major electrical shock, she left the collective and focussed solely on Peng engineering issues. Jessica is extremely religious when it comes to politics.
Phoebe talks like a leader, walks like a leader, smells like a leader but never has a plan. A trained physicist with a PhD on the history of Russian/US-American spy industry of aeronautics and aerospace programs, Phoebe decided to pursue her true passion and become a florist and Peng member after a false diagnosis of cancer. Phoebe can dance the cha cha cha with a natural grace at the oddest moments.
Corey has no pronoun and prefers to use pen and paper rather than verbal communication where possible. Because Corey sleeps for only 45 minutes a day, Corey is able to hold down several jobs at leading corporations while remaining a dedicated mole for Peng! Before joining the collective, Corey studied marine biology and dedicated 10 years to raising funds and establishing a sea life centre for retired show dolphins in Thailand.
