This topic is related to Global award for Human Technology
It would be great if this community could clearly define what constitutes humane technology and then compile a checklist and set of best-practices from that for website and app developers to take into account.
Additonally these sites/apps should then be rated according to this checklist… and maybe recorded in a set of ‘praising vs. naming+shaming’ pages, similar to the App Ratings page, but maintained by community contributors or even the wider public.
Finally, the top performers on the list, the most humane tech examples, would be allowed to proudly display a badge/logo on their landing page or within the app: Humane Technology. This logo links back to their position in the overall list.
The logo program could have several bagdes, maybe Bronze, Silver, Gold, or 2-star, 3-star depending on how well they are aligned with the checklist.
The global award for humane tech could then be based on an election by internet users from the top 10 or 50 or so entries in the list.
Wrt the checklist… it will contain things like:
- Clear Code of ethics present
- Data collection policy, what’s collected, how its used
- Privacy-first design, all privacy settings are opt-in
- All notifications can be switched off
- Offline modes present
- Non-distracting UX design
