About Us

Dissecting tech’s relationship with society

The Sociable is a technology news blog that picks apart how technology transforms society and vice versa.

We delve deep into how technology is used by governments, businesses, and citizens of the world while analyzing its ethical, social, and philosophical implications.

Our mission is to discern truths, wherever they lie.

We not only inform what is being done with technology but to empower a conscious and curious public by showing how and why technology is being implemented and whether these policies align with the values of a free society.

“What is eternal is circular, and what is circular is eternal.” – Aristotle

Today the publication is headed by editor Tim Hinchliffe and is operated by a number of journalists throughout the globe.
