My name is Hiba and I’m the founder of Rare Folks. I started this newsletter to push forward the discussion of public-interest technology and techno-ethics because I want to find the rarest gems of people that are looking to bridge the gap between how we design, build and govern digital products, services and spaces.
As a technologist, I talk a lot about what myself and peers can do in the realm of digital spaces but I also engage with and write about what other civic-minded peers and futurists are working on, including:
Supporting small businesses
Enabling better access to public servants and community welfare
Living an environmentally responsible life
Creating inclusive and fair workplaces
Improving employee wellbeing
Improving the experience of immigrants and refugees
If you’re interested in topics around public-interest technology, techno-ethics and experience design, I think you’ll find the newsletter thought-provoking and useful for virtual water-cooler talk.
