In April 2017, I left a perfectly good job at a large corporation to start my own company, dedicated to inclusive product development. One week later, MIT Press asked me if I would write a book on inclusive design. I agreed, without knowing exactly how I would make it happen.
This started a journey that transformed how I view myself, my work, and how technology shapes society. Or, more precisely, how the people who design technology shape society. For better or for worse.
Welcome to the first post in a collection of stories that I’m meeting along the way.
