Episode 026: Becks Boone, Robot Developer, Boulder Food Rescue

Our guest for Episode #26 is Becks Boone, Robot Developer at Boulder Food Rescue, and a software engineer with a focus on civic technology.

Becks and I discuss an array of topics, among them:

  • their perception of the USA from an American born and growing up on foreign soil, vs their actual experience upon arriving here at age 18
  • working with the City of Boulder on behalf of Code For America
  • the experience of a female-bodied person working in tech
  • thoughts on whether technology has a responsibility to culture and society
  • and the intersection of shared ownership, social justice and tech
