Jordyn spoke at SustainableUX 2019 on the topic of P2P energy efficiency. Her talk (embedded below) explores strategies P2P app creators can employ to keep energy use to a minimum.
I caught up with Jordyn in early November, 2021.
How’s it going?
JB: Can’t complain! The pandemic has been difficult personally, but I was already working remotely and I’ve stayed over-employed the entire time, which is lucky.
What are you working on these days? Tell us a bit about it.
JB: When I spoke at SustainableUX, I was in the middle of working on my startup TallyLab, which was building a peer-to-peer data science platform. I stopped working on that full time in the middle of 2020 and took a job as VP of Product at Brio Systems, a company coordinating workplace covid testing. I left Brio a few weeks ago to join a new startup called hollarhype as cofounding CTO. We’re building a voice-messaging platform that creates serendipitous 1:1 connection within communities. Could be fun for communities like this one, actually – see below…
How does climate thinking factor into your current product/role/company?
JB: We are building hollarhype with social movements in mind, and we most immediately see a use case for climate activists who need a way to support each other on those days when things feel most hopeless.
Are you involved in any (other) climate-related projects?
JB: Not at the moment, no. I think I’m burnt out somewhat. The pandemic offered us this golden opportunity to rethink how we were living before, but I fear we’ve squandered it in a vain attempt to “get back to normal”.
So, are we winning? Do you think digital workers are more engaged in climate and related issues these days?
JB: Maybe it’s my network in particular, but I see a lot of digital workers engaged in racial justice and labor rights, less so climate.
Jordyn, thank you!
