This is so important! We need ethics and human effect considered from the ground up. We are not afterthoughts!

I actually offer my services as a minority of the marginalized, one of those most impacted by the ways technology fails to uphold justice, privacy, and even basic safety (hello Facebook stalkers!).

But when are people going to finally understand that context is everything? That human-first consideration some “extra” to be tacked on but the seed to germinate from? That they choose to deepen the depths of abuse culture or to foster transparent culture every day?
