Hi All, Does anyone know whether there's a collection of all syllabi and readings on technology and social good (or public good or social change)? If such a collection doesn't exist, could you help me create one?
The readings can be from any discipline, seminal or not, and academic or not. I'd like to get cross-cultural readings, so we have representation of diverse perspectives from around the world. For the Stanford Program for Liberation Technology, I once made a list of all the topics on social good that I found on Twitter that intersected with technology. These included the following: - Accountability, Corruption, Openness, and Transparency (e.g., Open Data, Freedom of Information - FOI) - Activism, Protests, and Movements (e.g., Occupy, Anonymous, Hacktivism) - Agriculture, Farming, and Food Security (e.g., eAgri, Fishing, Mariculture, Aquaponics, Aquaculture) - Censorship, Repression, and Freedom (e.g., Freedom of Expression - FoE, Free Speech, NetFreedom, Right to Information - RTI) - Construction, Housing, and Real Estate (e.g., Smart Homes, Internet of Things) - Democracy, Politics, Elections, and Voting (e.g., Netroots, Tea Party, eVoting) - Development (e.g., Information and Communication Technologies for Development - ICT4D, Tech for Development - Tech4Dev, Global Development - GlobalDev) - Economics (e.g., Participatory Economy, Peer-to-Peer Economy, Commons) - Education (e.g., Information and Communication Technologies for Education - ICT4E, Open Education, eLearning, MOOCs) - Energy and Power (e.g., Microgrids) - Entrepreneurship (e.g., Social Entrepreneurship - socent, Social Innovation) - Environment (e.g., Brownfields, Landfills, Superfund Sites, Climate Change, and Land, Water, and Air Preservation) - Finance (e.g., Microfinance, FinTech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies) - Governance (e.g., eGovernance - eGov, Open Governance - OpenGov, Governance 2.0 - gov20) - Health (e.g., eHealth, mHealth, Telemedicine) - Human rights - Manufacturing (e.g., Additive Technologies, 3D Printing, Do-It-Yourself - DIY, Robotics) - Media (e.g., Journalism, Social Media) - Organizing and Organizations (e.g., Nonprofits, Community-Based Organizations, Cooperatives, Labor Unions) - Physical Spaces and Locations (e.g., Libraries, Coworking Spaces, Makerspaces, Hackerspaces, Fab Labs, Tool Sharing Libraries, Smart Cities, Mapping) - Policy and Law (e.g., Policy Innovations, Legal Innovations) - Privacy (e.g., Rules, Regulations, Laws, Frameworks) - Resilience During Conflicts, Natural Disasters, and Other Crises (e.g., Crisis Mapping; Robotics) - Security, Physical or Cyber - Social Science (e.g., Impact of Technology on Society) - Transportation and Supply Chain on Land, Water, and Air (e.g., Hyperloop, Autonomous Vehicles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Drones, Smart Roads) - Volunteering (e.g., Crowdsourcing, Participatory Mapping) - Water Security (e.g., Watersheds, Water Purification) The list above isn't meant to be exhaustive, so please feel free to suggest other forms of grouping topics or let me know if I missed an important topic or hashtag. I truly appreciate your help and advice, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks, Yosem
