About this video

Matt Cottam sees the current moment as an important “inflection point” in the way technology is shaping our lives, and he wants people to have a voice in what gets produced in the world. That’s why, he says, social ownership is an essential driver of design at Tellart, the design firm he co-founded in 2000.

Cottam says, “We are very focused on being useful translators and advocates for the general public, and to make technology a useful and pleasurable part of our culture, not just technology for technology’s sake or for the sake of making money.”
