In this episode, we speak with Cade Diehm. Cade is a political and systems theorist who was an early contributor on the messaging app Signal, as well as the chief design officer at SpiderOak.
He went on to lead design and security research at Tactical Tech, and most recently founded The New Design Congress where he currently researches the intersection of digital infrastructure, politics, and society.
Topics covered include the concept of digital regionalism, methods for building more ethical systems, and ways to challenge assumptions about how we build technology by imagining alternative histories.
