We're thinking big. about humanity about technology about democracy about the future
As democracy erodes and AI threatens to make humans obsolete, people increasingly struggle to make sense of it all and are losing a sense of agency.
Technology is advancing at a pace that far exceeds public understanding and policy while the rule of law, our institutions, and collective political discourse are being undermined. As a result, our society is not set up to ensure people succeed in the future. We need a shared vision of a future worth fighting for.
There are no major media companies that are dedicated to deeply engaging with these topics.
Although there exist several research institutes who study the future, they are inaccessible to the general public. Despite the importance of these issues, they are poorly understood.
Telos provides an informed, hopeful, and actionable vision for a better world.
Telos offers progressive commentary on technology and governance along with engaging daily local and national news roundups. Offering a collection of media - podcasts, newsletters, and engaging videos - Telos will have a broad reach.
Agency requires a future that is worth striving for and can be acted upon.
