Pizza Girl by Jean Kyoung Frazier

“Creating derivative software to help brands better understand their customers seemed like a poor use of my limited time on this burning planet.”

“Our current understanding of entrepreneurship is deeply saturated in power-hungry capitalist greed, leading to undemocratic control of the technological infrastructure that underpins our lives — not to mention massively wasteful economic inequality.

Wolfgang Streeck, Buying Time: The Delayed Crisis of Democratic Capitalism
