In an interview with KJZZ, Internet Ethics director Irina Raicu discusses The Democracy Project, a recent collaboration with The Atlantic, and the ways in which technology can both help and hinder democracy.

"A lot of [technologists] have been unaware of their own impact, of the impact of the tools that they're designing on the world that the rest of us get to live in," Raicu said. "There are different groups that need to be more aware at a more in depth level, but all of us need to be aware of the impact of technology on democracy." (AP Photo/David Zalubowski)
