Last week, we talked to the co-founders of Human ID, an ambitious non-profit project, inspired by a desire to fight misinformation and its potential threat to democracy around the world. We hope you’ll listen to these energetic founders and consider their perspectives. From ours, we see putting in the work to address the problem as admirable in itself. Whether this solution or one of their future projects end up hitting the mark, we’re excited to see them tackle some tough problems.

If you’d like to dive further into Human id, and we hope you will, you’ll find their GitHub profile, a demo, and a live implementation.

I’m sure they would love to see your feedback, and we would too. Please feel free to get in touch with us in a comment, or on any of our social outlets, or via our contact form. Sometimes it take us a little while to respond, but we’re definitely reading. Thank you!
