Tech journalist Carr launching Tech Worker
Technology journalist Paul Carr is launching a new website called Tech Worker, reports Berber Jin of Business Insider.
Jin reports, “Carr wants to use his new publication to amplify the voices of tech employees, a group he feels are less visible in the media than the CEOs, investors, and end users of tech products, he said.
“‘I love the idea of having a platform where we just won’t give up on those stories, where we’d just keep telling and telling and telling them until stuff changes,’ he said. ‘I have a feeling that the phenomenon of tech workers pushing back is a very big one and is one that is about to get even bigger.’
“While the publication has yet to publish its first piece, there are over a dozen people who have committed to being contributors to Tech Worker.
“Those include Ray Holgado, a former employee of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative who is suing the organization over allegations of racial discrimination; Yael Eisenstat, the ex-CIA officer who left her role at Facebook in protest of its policies regulating misinformation; and Claire Stapleton, a Google walkout organizer.”
