Ethical Design

Accessibility, Humane by Design and screen time. Work, projects and learning about ethical design.

Introduction

How can we better design the internet to be less annoying, addictive, and intrusive, and more accessible. Making human experience, effort and rights the main focus. And incorporating best practices of inclusive, ethical and humane design.

Making the internet, and the world, a little better for humans. Which has been increasingly important, due to the stark increase of time spend on the internet; working remote, an online birthday stream, or signing up the get vaccinated.

My hobbies, work and marriage wouldn’t have been if it hadn’t been for the existence of the internet. But I have to confess, I have been down the Youtube rabbit hole, have overreacted on Facebook and have an unhealthy relationship with my phone.

Many tools and technologies are marketed as improving our lives, many of them do not. When I reached a personal limit back in 2014, I decided I wanted to dive more into different ways we can make the internet more human-friendly, and highlight the people working in these spaces.

This is my attempt to learn more about accessible-, humane-, ethical- and unpleasant design. About algorithms, influencers, and codes of conduct, of online spaces. And hopefully learn a lot.
