Offscreen is an independent Australian publication born with the aim of bringing to paper, with greater care and depth, some discussions on technology of which we can find tides of online materials.
It is a solid attempt, which seeks a balance of opinions, to tell how technology is changing and how technology is changing man.
As our decisions are increasingly made by algorithms based on ever-growing datasets and our obsession with perpetual growth reaches its natural limits, we urgently need to reassess what "technological progress" should be.
Through in-depth interviews and a wide range of contributors, Offscreen examines the role of technology today and its potential to advance or harm humanity and our interdependence with other species. The magazine looks beyond the conventional definition of entrepreneurial success in technology and puts the spotlight on people, projects and ideas that offer a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable vision of the future.
