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.
As we come to the end-line of 2022, an unflattering picture of Big Tech is emerging, one in which mass layoffs, dampened earnings, and plunging stock prices have become the face of Silicon Valley. As these crises play out, the need for strong regulatory intervention becomes more urgent than ever. This month on DataSyn, we bring you two pieces that respond to this imperative, working to shape the discourse in real time.
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!
