disobedient technology

Digital technology is not just Silicon Valley and its ethics. Different people experience technology differently. Functionality and usability designed by big tech fails to resonate in the context of marginalized groups. Think migrant communities, gender non-conforming individuals or simply people who aren’t happy with the dominant socio-political system.

Disobedient Technology is a series of articles by Danae Tapia in which she provides a user-centered critical perspective on technological developments. She will address the diverse creative manifestations of disobedient individuals and communities in the centralized and surveilled digital environments that we inhabit.
