From pushing pixels to changing lives

“Those of us who grew up designing things online need to realize the repercussions of the work we do.

We’re no longer pushing pixels around. We’re building complex systems that touch people’s lives, affect their personal relationships, broadcast both words of support and hate, and undeniably affect their mental health.

When we do our jobs well we improve people’s lives. When we don’t, people die.”
