Call for Action: Join the Humane Tech Awareness program - From Awareness to Cultural Awakening!



The “Speak Easy” campaign theme and “Phone Zombies” campaign have just been launched (see on Github for related discussions). Correct me if I am wrong, @aschrijver, but I believe @Dori makes a good point here: this new lingo is meant to be funny and light-hearted.

The “Mankind 2.0” campaign theme and “Reality Shock” campaign of short, dramatic videos are for now not meant to be humorous, working on shock - or fears - instead.

Good to have both approaches, great idea!


Yes, humorous, preferably hilarious even, with a surprise effect. All to maximize chance of video going viral :clown_face:


(newcomers to this post, first (re-)read this topic’s starter post.)

Dear @Campaigners team,

The past couple of days @Georges and I (with much help of @micheleminno, @patm and @healthyswimmer) have spent way more than a full-time job to get the foundation of our project in place. We are still far from having that foundation in optimal shape, but want to report to you, what we’ve been doing, and hopefully provide some more handholds for you to jump in too.

Our ultimate goal is to get a project that runs at a steady and healthy pace, and where you - fellow team members - feel comfortable to participate in. And you can help with that! But first an overview:

(I moved the remainder of this message to the topic post at the top, going from Current project status).


Hello @aschrijver im still a student, Im so interested in the campaign and would love to help you with everything I can do. Maybe id be a bump in the way you all work but once I get the right start im sure I can help a lot.


I am sure of that too Pavan. Welcome to the team!


I’m happy to help where I can. I can’t spare much time, but happy to help raise awareness using the social channels which I’m building for my blog covering similar topics. And on the blog itself where relevant.


Great Justin! Put your Campaigners hat on, because now you are on the team :partying_face: Participation does not come with commitments or obligations. Your best efforts will do, if you decide to commit yourself to some task :slight_smile:


Hi! I would like to be a part of this campaign to create awareness! Digital dementia is at its peak, appreciate the initiative @aschrijver, count me in.


You are in, @Shiv! And very nice to have you!


Hi everyone !

Hey Youssef! That is wonderful! I’ll add you to our Campaigners team right away :slight_smile:


Guys, it is all good news you are keen to get involved in this awareness initiative. Next step: get on the Github repository now (there is a link at the top here), sign up, and start contributing (it’s as easy as 1-2-3).


@aschrijver Please count me in. I’m time-limited by my startup but keen to contribute in any way possible. I’m now watching the repo on GitHub.


Splendid! I hereby welcom you as our 18th member :slight_smile:

Great @ALFREDO, you are in Campaigners team :slight_smile:


Hello Everyone. My name is Marcel and I am from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, where I direct the Critical Media Lab. I am interested in being involved as a Campaigner. Here is a recent project from my lab that could be activated by this group: .

And here is an article I wrote recently in the Globe and Mail about “techlash,” backlash against technology.

I hope we can make some positive changes together.


Welcome in the team, @Marcel! I’ll add you to the Campaigners group right away :slight_smile:
