have you noticed the new feature on your devices which, perhaps to your horror, tells you how long you use different apps and how many hours you drain into that cute and addictive furry slingshot game, or even worse, your emails? Well, it’s proof that advocacy makes an impact and this new feature is the result of persistent campaigning about tech’s influence over our lives. Offscreen give us four stellar interviews on this subject, the first of which with Richard Pope, whose expertise in digital public policy makes for a fascinating interview. Elsewhere there are interviews with Amber Case about humane tech design; interface designer Aza Raskin turns his attention to attention itself; and they catch up with tech ethnographer, Tricia Wang. Plus, a tremendous cover.
