Working to build/create/develop/enable/ensure
a more generative society.


For ALL the People

The creators of the internet promised us jetpacks: better experiences, more choices, and deeper relationships. But instead of jetpacks, we were given cat videos—and lots and lots of ads. Our platforms don’t work for us—we’re the inventory, and our outrage has fueled a tech revolution optimized for profit at the expense of our civic life. 

In For ALL the People, I walk readers through the evolution of modern storytelling from the traditional media gatekeepers of the past to today’s era of decentralization, disconnection, and disinformation. Then explore the four dimensions of our media systems that must be reclaimed to work better for all of us: platforms, content, institutions, and ourselves.

Let's do something amazing together.
