Tad Hirsch

Tad Hirsch spoke about Dialup Radio, a tool that delivers human rights and independent media via telephone. Currently Dialup Radio is being developed for the citizens of Zimbabwe, but the system has been designed to meet the needs of human rights activists around the world. This project is one example of what Tad calls “activist infrastructure” drawing on his knowledge of technology, system design, and his experience working with human rights and non-governmental organizations. Like Mako’s voting machine for the masses, Tad’s projects show the power of artists, technologists and policy makers working together towards projects that can effect lasting social and political change.
