My name is Robert Prehn. I’m a software engineer, an organizer, and an economist. I currently lead the Engineering team at Revelry Labs. I live near New Orleans (in Lacombe, LA specifically). I’m also involved in several projects to make my community and the tech sector more equitable and humane.
I believe that technology can unleash human potential, but it won’t do so autonomously. Technology exists in relation to social structures and economic forces. When we project forward into the future, these relations must be at the center of our model. I believe we must not just create new things, but we must do so in a way which leads to a healthier, happier, and more fair world.
