Task failed succesfully. Hoe corona-apps toch nog nuttig bleken te zijn
12 apr. 2021 - De theorie was simpel: corona-apps waarschuwen gebruikers als ze met besmette personen in contact zijn gekomen. In de praktijk stonden ruziënde techneuten, wantrouwende cryptografen, boze overheden, natuurkundige wetten en onverschillige burgers in de weg.

Our Bodies Encoded: Algorithmic Test Proctoring in Higher Education
2 apr. 2020 - Cheating is not a technological problem, but a social and pedagogical problem. Technology is often blamed for creating the conditions in which cheating proliferates and is then offered as the solution to the problem it created; both claims are false.

The US Federal Government Needs a VP of Engineering, not a CTO
16 dec. 2020 - If you look at the roster of the Biden-Harris transition team, it’s quickly apparent that the incoming administration is tech-forward. Given the systematic dismantlement of the federal government over the last four years, and the significant logistical and scientific needs underpinning a large-scale vaccine roll-out, it is unsurprising to hear that the new team is looking to bring in tech talent. Under the Obama Administration, the White House invested significantly in shoring up the Office of Science and Technology Policy, an office that has for all intents and purposes laid dormant for four years under the current Administration. The Obama Administration also hired the first Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to help envision what a tech-forward US government might look like. As the Biden-Harris transition builds its plans for January 20th, many people in my networks are abuzz, wondering who might be the next CTO.
