More About Us
Unfinished we aspire to move the traditional paradigm for solving problems from
a top-down, disconnected approach to a more democratized, stakeholder-driven
model. Our network convenes a community of diverse innovators from the worlds
of impact, academia (such as Georgetown University), arts and culture (such as The Shed),
nonprofits (such as the Ford
Foundation and Aspen
Institute), and the private sector to ensure diverse
and thoughtful voices are connected to solve problems.
want to put people at the decision-making table who are most impacted by the
problems we are solving. We are doing this in several ways, including convening
a group of impact organizations for collective action and movement building,
and supporting the renewal of existing civic institutions—and the creation of
new ones—to accelerate more inclusive problem-solving. We believe that by
redirecting technology to work for the common good, we can leverage it as an
essential tool to scale positive change. We work to build concrete tools and
models to advance ethical models for information technology.
One of our first efforts will be to change the way
technology is built--and
our first focus is to change the model that drives social networks. Social
networks inform how we experience almost everything. We can't strengthen civic
institutions, foster a more sustainable democracy, or create a fairer economy
if we don't first change the model that drives social networks. We see
social networks as a public good that should be owned by everyone and a key
lever for strengthening our civic architecture. We are working to
decentralize social networks, shift control of data and networks from private
companies to citizens, lay the foundation for a new world which generates
economic value for people rather than extracting economic value from
users. This moves social networks from closed, proprietary spaces to
open, publicly owned infrastructure on which anyone can build. This more
ethical model offers the opportunity for change at scale across all dimensions
of society. You can read more about this project here.
