Book review: Design for Safety
9 sep. 2021 - Just sometimes, the responsible tech movement can be frustratingly myopic.

In Design for Safety, Eva PenzeyMoog pushes for user safety to be more prominent in the ethical tech conversation, pinpointing how technologies are exploited by abusers and how industry carelessness puts vulnerable users at risk.
