Writing for the web is part of the job, but writing for something you can hold in your hands is special. This one definitely hits the target.
The first ever print issue of Smashing Magazine is shipping worldwide any day now. A deep dive into privacy and ethics, it includes a provocation piece Morten Rand-Hendriksen and I wrote on ethics washing. If you’ve ever sat through my talks on privacy and Morten’s talks on ethics, our article is the sweet spot between the two: a reminder that the concepts of privacy and ethics are being misinterpreted across our sector every day. We hope our piece challenges readers to do the right thing.
The issue has been ably curated by Rachel Andrew, illustrated by Veerle Pieters, and features articles by Laura Kalbag, Vitaly Friedman, Trine Falbe, Stuart Langridge, and Cenyyd Bowles.
We are people of enormous power and influence over the web. I empower digital professionals to use that power wisely. As a tech policy and regulation specialist, I educate the makers of the web on the policy issues which impact their work, inspire communities to participate constructively in the regulatory sphere, and represent the tech sector in the advocacy processes which shape the web.
