As long as social media companies profit from outrage, confusion, addiction, and depression, our well-being and democracy will continue to be at risk.

It's time to change that.

We are a team of deeply concerned technologists, policy experts, and social impact leaders who intimately understand how the tech industry’s culture, techniques, and business models control 21st century digital infrastructure.

Together with our partners, we are dedicated to radically reimagining technology for the common good of humanity.
