About Chris Garaffa

Tech for the People was born out of frustration with much of the mainstream media’s coverage of technology: Feature stories on the billionaires at the head of major tech companies, baseless & unverified reporting on international questions, and very little mention of how privacy and security impact your everyday working-class person.
On top of all that, many critical stories about security and privacy get little or no press – or they get totally misrepresented.
Every day, the average person in the U.S. is spied on by multiple federal agencies, their state and maybe even local government. We’re having our data packaged and sold and re-sold not just by Google and Facebook but by thousands of nameless, faceless companies that we don’t hear about until it’s too late. Our faces are recorded on cameras on every corner, and our phone track our every move.
Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple sell us devices with cameras and always-on microphones to keep in our house, but are opaque about their data security standards.
While there are plenty of tech resources out there, very few look at these issues from the perspective of the people impacted by the issues. And so Tech for the People was born.
Goals
