Technology shouldn’t abuse people.
Responsible technology is about helping. It’s about meeting its users’ needs and making their lives better. It depends on design, co-design, research, and user engagement. It depends on an ethical orientation and values-driven decision making. And these things are only possible in the context of a community that provides insight, feedback, and accountability.
Simply Secure’s Underexposed Collective is a loosely-knit group of designers, researchers, writers, advocates, and users who reject the current trajectory of mainstream technology development. We believe that technology can better support us. We support people by providing funding, education, mentorship, design support, research, testing, and a community for collaboration.
About the Residency
Simply Secure is convening the first Underexposed Residency in January 2019. Fellows from around the world will spend one week with the Simply Secure team focused on a project that they propose. Together, the cohort will use the residency to workshop their specific design challenge. Over the week they will have time for user research, independent work, lectures, critical discussions, design critiques and office hours with leaders in the field. Fellows will also have an opportunity to share their work with the public.
