Through the development of technology the world has grown to rely on it. Technology is apart of our daily lives, without it many would feel as though they could no longer continue life fluidly. The controversy that comes with technology is who the consumers are and how it affects the rest of society when the platform, software, or product itself is made for one select part of the community and not them.
Lack of resources one would say is a set back that negatively affects the ability to move forward and develop in today’s society. In this post it is mentions that “Silicon Valley design platforms and services mainly for urban elites, like themselves often young, white, male, and technically savvy”, the ability to create and develop requires someone with money and someone who is willing to spend it. The post goes on to say that although technology is largely valued all over the world, many times it is designed for a certain place or certain people. This leads me to believe that although many believe technology will be diverse and accessible to people all over the world, in order to make development easier, it’s not. Diversity is false advertisement in the world of technology and in order to obtain and use efficiently you must be part of the designer’s social class.
