A little bit about us
Hello and welcome to Bot Populi! We are an alternative media platform dedicated to looking at all things digital from a social justice and Global South perspective. We aim to meaningfully shape the public discourse on digitalization and prompt important conversations about transformative change for a better digital future.
To this end, we explore how the digital world affects different aspects of our lives in obvious and unexpected ways. Our contributors include passionate and committed scholars, activists, and visionaries from around the world working on issues of digital justice.
This month, as DataSyn completes two years, we revisit some of our milestone essays and features from the year past. These pieces take on 2023’s significant developments as well as reflect the key tenets of our editorial focus. From the in-depth reporting of our Big Tech and Media fellows, to our engagement with different facets of the Generative AI craze, coverage of important multilateral politics, vital feminist analysis of digitality, and worker rights, this issue covers the full range of our recent work.
Engage with our diverse thematic tracks examining various facets of our digital world. We explore labor issues in the digital economy, provide critiques of corporate excess and surveillance capitalism, examine feminist issues in the online sphere, investigate developments in AI and tech policy, and much more.
Our contributors have covered diverse issues of digital justice in the Global South. Get to know what they have to say. Explore our past publications through our Archive!
