About BRINK Foundation
Our Vision is a better Internet.
We want to educate policymakers and digital consumers (YOU) about what is happening to us (YOU), how it is happening and why we (YOU!) should care.
We are currently focusing our efforts on fighting the following four destructive forces:
Filter Bubbles left, right and center.
The tendency to Skew to Sensationalism.
How algorithms push us toward regressive Binary Thinking.
The perils not-so-hidden in Unclear Authority.
We take issue with the very construct of the Internet. The dream was that it would bring us together. In reality, it is tearing us apart.
Come on humanity, we can do better!
We use our deep bench of marketing skill sets, moxie and a few of your dollars to spread the word wide. We create free lesson plans for teachers, drop educational campaigns into the conversation and sponsor events that get people thinking. If you give us a few Benjamins we will spend them wisely. What we do is not cheap, but it works.
It’s time to stop making excuses, time to act!
Arizona Voter GuidesIn 2018, we used Instagram Story videos to target young Arizona voters encouraging them to seek out impartial information on the candidates in the midterm election. Rising above polarized rhetoric to deliver clear, entertaining, non-partisan, unbiased guides, BRINK took home a prestigious REED award in the “Best Use of Technology for GOTV” category for this campaign.
United NationsIn 2016, we worked with the UN foundation to create a series of animated web spots highlighting important global issues. This video went viral, organically, after some millennial celebrities shared it on twitter.
Quick Takes are a way of dipping your ears into pools of momentary noise, looking for comforting melodies to listen to as the world implodes.
Don’t overthink them.
Now Tim wants to fix it... Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...
Another voice in the chorus...
Information is eating humanity for lunch. It should be the other way around....
China leads the way! Who is next?
Chicken or the egg? The broken Internet has pushed television into extremist partisan corners. Get mad about this!
Feeling incognito? Digital Fingerprinting is a completely insidious way for algorithms to sniff you out like a dog.
Facebook doesn't give a shit when politicians spread lies. The more money spent to pay facebook for the ad, the further the lie can spread!
Xenophobic Bullshit Juice
At the the dawn of climate barbarism mass migrations occur around the world, while the Internet feeds the fires of Climate Change Denial.
Do we need to NUDGE people to use their BRAINS?
