If you’re trying to use technology to help people build power, keep in mind that technology often excludes segments of our society with the least power and who are in need of the most help. Technology is something only available to those who can afford it (and the time to use it). If your target audience is people like you, your idea could easily exacerbate problems for people less well off than you.
I’ve been hearing these stories for years (especially the “I have to ask my wife” answer or often the more dismissive, “My wife wouldn’t use this” — as though the wife of an investor would be representative of the larger market). I have also, for years, been hearing investors say, “We really WANT to invest in women!” which may be true but is often different from “we really want to invest in women and we’ll use the exact same criteria applied to men and totally check our own gender biases in the process.”
