Digital Standard

The “Digital Standard”, openly maintained under a CC-BY-4.0 license on Github, is an ambitious project to establish shared values in development of software-based products:

Our goals are to enable consumer organizations to test, evaluate, and report on whether new products protect consumer security and privacy, and to empower consumers to make smarter choices about the products they buy.

Covering Security, Privacy, Ownership, and Governance & Compliance, the test categories of the standard can be a handy tool for evaluating these in a product development process.

I'm Sebastian, Sociologist and Interaction Designer. This journal is mostly about bringing toge­ther social science and design for inclusive, privacy-focused, and sustainable "human-first" digital strategies. I also tend to a "digital garden" with carefully curated resources.

My occasionally sent email newsletter has all of the above, and there is of course also an RSS feed or my Mastodon/Fediverse profile.
