Heal the Internet (reprise)

The ongoing debate about Big Tech surveillance and consumer privacy has prompted a fair amount of internal discussion and policy changes at Basecamp over our own practices. We’ve stopped using tracking pixels in emails and no longer collect emails for people who download Getting Real, our free ebook. And in late August, David Heinemeier Hansson wrote a post called “You can heal the Internet,” about alternatives to Big Tech.

On the latest episode of the Rework podcast, DHH talks about institutional and personal stances on tech privacy—and why individual action can actually lead to change when it comes to the big problems of our time. (A transcript is also available on the episode page.)

One thought on “Heal the Internet (reprise)

  1. Sean, Wailin, and David

    Thanks for another great podcast! I really appreciate David’s stance on how change takes more time than most people think, and really just takes a bit of patience and persistence. Truly refreshing in this day and age. Also shout out to David’s recommendation of Indie Bound. I know where I’ll be shopping for physical books now. Keep up the great work!
