Almost a decade ago, NationBuilder was founded on the principle that people must own their own data. This long-standing ethical stance for data ownership serves as a starting point for a robust conversation between Marietje Schaake and Lea Endres on the influence of technology on democratic processes, the necessity of transparent business models, and the intersection between technology and ethics.
