|About Popular Technology
|How do we create a more just present? How do we make science and technology serve social justice?
Popular Technology is a critical approach to thinking and acting in our shared technological present. It focuses on how science and technology impact our lives, work, families, and community every day. The practice is rooted in the belief that people closest to problems have the best information about them, and are most invested in creating smart solutions.
Interested in issues like high-tech developments impact on employment and the living wage, the use of technology in the social service system, or the connection between the information economy and prison expansion in the Capital Region? Want to design and prototype tools to spread information, ameliorate injustice, and connect concerned community members?
