Call for Volunteers: Submission Reviewers for Incarcerated Voices Project (Remote)

Today, imprisonment and incarceration have become a fundamental component of popular culture. The voices of prisoners today are being commandeered by corporate media. National Geographic and MSNBC, among others, have decided that American prisons are fascinating. Even TV chef Gordon Ramsay released a new reality show in which he teaches prisoners how to cook. To counter the discourse around these exotified depictions of prisons and prisoners, the Incarcerated Voices project examines the…See More

This past week at the UN General Assembly, in reference to the threat of terrorism, particularly, acts committed by Muslims, President Obama stated the following:  "Second, it is time for the world – especially Muslim communities – to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL." Later in his speech, Obama praised a campaign launched by British Muslims called #notinmyname, which seeks to distance the acts of a few from what Islam preaches.  …

Can Social Good Whitewash Social Bad?

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 5:30pm 1 Comment

The concept of social good has emerged as somewhat of a catchphrase intended to capture the idea of creating positive, measurable, and sustainable change in communities and societies.  To this end, campaigns have been launched ranging from twitter hashtags to companies' withdrawals from production in countries with conflict.  



While it would be difficult to fully catalog the range of social good initiatives, campaigns, etc. that are happening across the globe, this weekend' social…

Under the Rug, but Not in a Vacuum: Technology for the Social Good in Context

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

This past Sunday and Monday, I attended the Social Good Summit that took place in New York City.  The two days were filled with talks from journalists to activists to writers to scholars and they all sought to address the role that technology could play in some of the world's most pressing problems.  



Some speakers reflected on the conflict in Israel and Palestine, while other spoke to creating tools for women's empowerment.  Another speaker discussed her campaign for equality for…

Understanding Technology in the Context of Social Good: Reflections on the Social Good Summit

Posted on September 22, 2014 at 12:00am 2 Comments

Social good can be pursued through many different avenues.  One such avenue, is through technology.  In the context of today's Social Good Summit, technology was a theme that was interwoven throughout the day's talks.  However, an important nuance that the Summit did not address was the distinction between technology as a tool in raising awareness, technology as a tool of empowerment, and technology for social justice.  



In this regard, a myriad of issues from child marriage to…
