Producing short dramatic videos to raise awareness

Hi @aschrijver

Created a request to add a file for the first video script. Not yet quite conversant with Github, so I hope this is the way you envisaged it.

Thanks again for your invaluable contributions on this project, which I know come on top of all your work as a forum moderator. Is there a way we could share admin rights for certain parts of the repository? This could alleviate your burden.

@patm creating separate issue is not needed. I responded to @healthyswimmer yesterday, that I will create a manual for people that are new to Github and add that to the repository. See:

Project seriously taking shape, with a Github repository and discussions approaching conclusions on a unifying theme, campaign ideas, and a draft script for the first video.

If you believe awareness is a critical pillar of promoting humane technology and dramatic videos can help raising it, please join us on Github and get your hands dirty!

@anon51879794 yes having many venues in Github could be important to capture the best of everyone on this forum.

Effective comprehensive education includes many types of media to reach all learning styles. Educators teach best in their chosen style as well. Thank you @aschrijver for stepping up to the plate once again!!

Videos capture a very special audience who needs to be reached the most.

This reminds me we all need to read each others work so we can help one another express important ideas in different types of media.

Thanks everyone!! Good to be here.


Indeed! Thanks to you Arnold, we now have a clearly structured collaboration space where we can effectively push projects to fruition. Awareness is a critical pillar and it was well worth your efforts to now have a clear platform where all related projects can be developed. Looking forward to working with all members of the community feeling strongly about this topic.

The inspirational imagination to raise awareness of the problem is as important as the will to tackle it head on with a related detailed proposed solution. I’m proud and glad to join and add to this thread’s audio/visual mission.


Great to hear that, @Hex. Welcom to the team! Could you also give a shout on the Call for Participation: The Humane Tech Awareness Campaigns project has started topic, and click the poll?

Hi! I think I had a pretty similar idea to what you describe here, except coming at it from the educational perspective. I’ve been creating and teaching courses (somehow the institutions that have been hiring me to teach for them have been ok with this) on the cognitive efficiencies that are being exploited by our technologies. My goal is to empower as many people as I can reach through education and before I got bogged down with my teaching/post-doc responsibilities I had started planning to create a series of accessible educational videos for the purpose. It seems like we are interested in the same sort of work and, I’m sorry I’m late to the party, but are you still doing this work? Have you made progress? Can I help?


Welcome to Humane Tech Community, Anna. Unfortunately the projects we were envisioning have stalled for now due to reasons outlined in this post. But feel free to discuss any ideas you have in this regard and/or provide pointers to related work of your own :slight_smile:
