Technology is nice. It undergirds most of what we do at scale today. It’s a powerful tool for change, but much like money, it turns toxic when sought for its own sake.

So I want to see technology do good. I think it can help people help each other. It can celebrate human qualities. It can empower artists over technocrats and foster individual craft over power structures.

Sometimes I get to do my part in the change, and sometimes I get to cheer from the sidelines as it happens. Hopefully, these letters will be a mix of both.

So what’s in a Dispatch?

The following questions fit well in the Kind Dispatch. I hope it helps paint a picture of what you might find in there:

  • What does humane, respectful technology look like?

  • What great mix of tech and art has there been lately?

  • How can we get closer to a situation where everyone can build using technology?

  • What’s currently bubbling in the Big Tech world that would affect all of us? Not too much of that, though.

If that sounds interesting to you, you’re free to sign up:

And excuse me but who are you?

Right! Hi! I’m Louis-André, I work as an independent digital designer (who doesn’t!) and I hobby as a generative artist. I’ve been in this biz for a bit over ten years now, first working mostly with biotechs, startups and large organizations. I’ve since moved away from the frenetic parts of the industry – and have been much happier since.

Is it “Kind Dispatch” or “the Kind Dispatch”?

There are lots of dispatches, so I think it makes sense for it to be “the Kind Dispatch”? You can change my mind though.
