WE need to return to the old internet if humanity has any chance, according to American tech veterans Anil Dash and Mike Monteiro, who give businesses a couple of tips on how to do so.
Tips for tech founders and businesses to improve the internet:
Design for those who have the least
Perhaps his strongest conviction of all is the need to design the internet with the most vulnerable in mind, not the most information rich, or elitist groups of society.
Carry persistent identities
Not advocating for first name, nickname or pseudonym in particular, Dash says each person just needs to stick to one identity across each platform.
Hold creators accountable
Dash created Makerbase for the purpose of accountability and recognition, a community detailing the people who make apps and websites.
