Inspiration, Knowledge & Networking

Are Tech Giants Serving You?

Let’s deconstruct tech & digital marketing narratives to be more critical of the big players like Facebook, Google, Apple and Microsoft. This presentation is based on the experiences I have gained working with humanistic & forward thinking collectives including Nowhere, MakeSense, OuiShare & POC21. As cofounder of Jerry Do It Together we shared the inspiration and processes  to support small communities to create their own IT infrastructures that serve them and could be serving you better.
