The tech sector: Friend or foe of changemakers worldwide?

In a recent Guardian piece, I covered some promising human rights initiatives helped along by tech sector companies, both large and small. This subject is a thorny one, for many good reasons. Activists are very suspicious tech giants and this suspicion tends to get transposed on the sector as a whole. At the same time, there are a lot of apps, hacks and strategic uses of social networks that are helping activists worldwide.

Since I did not have enough time to download all the examples I found in the course of my research, here is a quick dump of references, classified as Tech sector = good or Tech sector = bad. For you to judge!

Tech sector = Bad

Many more, I am sure… Care to suggest some?

Tech sector = Good
