A lot of the technology that empowers people does so while simultaneously creating a large power disparity between the user of the technology and the provider of the technology. In aggregate, this can result in an unhealthy power dynamic between the technology provider and society as a whole. SovereignCyb.org is a news feed focusing on technology that empowers people while minimizing those sorts of power disparities.
This is a new project of mine, but I’ve long felt a need for it. It’s hard to be a thoughtful, engaged consumer in every sphere of consumption, but particularly so in technology. There’s very little ink spilled in popular media over anything but the most superficial of technology’s political and social implications. It is much easier to find information about ethical food sources, for example, than it is to find information about ethical technological consumption. My hope is that SovereignCyb.org will help people discover ideas and projects on the progressive edge of ethics and technology.
