I’d like to introduce a pilot project that I’m working on called Civility- a social platform for 5-person, face-to-face conversations at cafes and coffee shops. Our mission at Civility is to revive humanity’s most powerful social networking tool by bringing back the art of civil discourse.
In our invite-only Facebook group, you can interact with like-minded proponents of humane technologies and politically-diverse intellectuals ranging from liberals to anarcho-capitalists. Best of all, you can join, create, and schedule 5-person discussions with local members of our community at any time.
At the end of the day, I believe that talking about human-centered technologies online is not enough to make social change… If we’re truly serious about our current state of affairs, we need to take action as well. We can organize in-person discussions and meetups with other passionate individuals. From there, we can take further steps to collaborate with each other and work on more solutions that are optimized for human flourishing- not addiction and manipulation.
Here’s a link to our FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2046706728941748/
If you live in the Bay Area and you’re interested in joining, DM or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get you set up with onboarding and personally invite you to our community of F2F enthusiasts.
Time is gold.
