This Hilarious Fake App Exploits the Power of Privilege

The winning entry at this year’s Comedy Hack Day in San Francisco, WellDeserved perfectly sums up everything that is wrong with Silicon Valley. From tech privilege to male privilege, this app even lets you monetize your hipster privilege. If you have any race, gender or socio-economic advantage you can exploit, this app is the place to do it.

Sustainable Economic Solutions to California’s Drought

Peer-to-Peer Energy Sharing to Reduce Energy Poverty

Energy poverty is a global problem, even in economically well-developed countries. People suffering from energy poverty cannot afford to cool or heat their homes, cook for their children, conveniently wash clothes, or even read or study at night. They have to make difficult decisions that most of us never and shouldn’t have to face – do they put food on the table, or save money to keep the lights on and their house or apartment a safe temperature? For these families, crowdsourcing energy presents a unique opportunity.
