Hello and welcome back to another episode of the Tech for Good live podcast. We talk about tech that does some kind of social good, but we also like talking about how tech could maybe be a little less terrible. This may be our 240th episode, which is very silly. In one we are talking about the news, including Internet Ninjas and Elon Musk doing something new involving AI. Oh, good.
This week’s topics:
Good story of the week:
Internet 'ninjas' fighting misinformation on Twitter. But are they in danger of becoming the trolls they hunt:
Bad news story of the week:
After co signing the recent letter to demand a pause in AI development Elon Musk had started a project to develop his own competitor to ChatGPT:
Next week we have an interview with our old friend Mark Walker from Ability net, an accessibility consultancy. We’ll be talking about what’s changed since we last spoke (pre-pandemic) and also about their up and coming Tech 4 Good Awards.
Listeners, what did you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks to podcast.co for hosting our podcast.
Also, please don't forget this podcast is run by volunteers and we survive on sponsorships and donations. Right now one of our primary goals is to make sure all of our podcast episodes are accessible by making sure EVERY episode is transcribed. Sadly this costs money and we desperately need your help to make this become a reality! So if you've ever tuned into one of our podcasts or attended one of our events please consider chipping in the price of a cup of coffee.
