Tech Against Trump (Available now)

Tech Against Trump is a book chronicling the rising tide of anti-Trump resistance by technologists and tech workers. How are people using technology to disrupt Trumpism? How are folks working in tech organizing to prevent their companies from enabling the Administration’s agenda? We interview a wide range of individuals and groups to help us answer these questions, and provide resources for further action.

Issue 1: Intelligence (Available now)

Our very first issue. Tales have been told far and wide of its impressive hand-feel. “I can’t stop touching it,” says one early reviewer. The content is even better.

We're thrilled to be publishing a range of talented folks on a variety of subjects—from DIY brain scanners to the feminization of front-end coding; electronic medical records and the doctors that hate them to border patrol robots; and more.
