We have started this blog out of care. A care for how technology impacts our lives. We know there are plenty of technology blogs out there, but still we felt that there is not enough.
The blog’s focus is to study technological developments especially in areas such as cyber-security, social media, artificial intelligence and privacy and to analyse their impact upon ourselves, humans. The overall scope of all work and materials on this blog should be to support a sustainable development of human beings through an optimal use of technology.
We do acknowledge that technology has been a great facilitator for human flourishing, especially in the last century. Nevertheless, technology has always been susceptible for dual use, and we believe we are living in an age where the amount of technology available, corroborated with its improper use can have destructive effects upon our societies. We will work on that, hopefully together with you.

“Technology nowadays has profound implications for societies and individuals. When discussing the future of technology we must think take into account human nature, as technology should be designed and work in our benefit not the other way around. I guess this is what made me start this blog, a strong incentive on analyzing the aspect of technology that impact our human nature. Also out of practical and selfish reasons: I am too lazy to dig into topics unless I have an incentive. Now you are my incentive.”
