We’re a tiny and independent two-person not-for-profit based in Ireland. We advocate for and build small technology to protect personhood and democracy in the digital network age.

Small Technology are everyday tools for everyday people designed to increase human welfare, not corporate profits.
Small Tech is…
- easy to use
- private by default
- share alike
- peer to peer
- zero knowledge

What we do
Our main activity is research and development. We also spend some of our time on implementing technological regulation, advocacy, raising awareness, and education.
Research and development.
Imagine a peer-to-peer web where you own your own home at your own address and where only you have the key to your front door. This is what we’ve been working towards for the last five years.
Learn more about our research and development.
We reduce the harms of surveillance capitalists by limiting their surveillance capabilities on the centralised web with Better Blocker, our tracker blocker and self-curated tracker database.

Advocacy, raising awareness, and education.

We give talks, write articles and books, and give media interviews.
