## What’s mine is mine and what’s ours is his
When we started [Small Technology Foundation](https://small-tech.org), we decided these links needed a new home. These links have always been *my* view of what *I* think is related to our work. That is not to say that [Aral](https://ar.al) disagrees with my perspective, but that both Ind.ie and Small Technology Foundation have always been a collection of mine and Aral’s work. That’s why we blog on our own sites and then share the relevant posts aggregated on the [Small Technology Foundation news](https://small-tech.org/news/). Thus it also makes sense for the links I collect to live on my site.

But there’s another reason why me posting as myself is valuable. Unless we specifically say the work I do is done by me, my work is often attributed to Aral. It’s not Aral’s fault. He’s deliberate in attributing my work to me, and continually corrects people who attribute my work to him or our work to him alone. But sometimes even that is not enough. We’ve even had people assuming he co-wrote [my book](/book).

## My lens means what’s important to me
As I said, the links on my lens are from my perspective. This means often I include articles that aren’t written from a technologist’s point of view and aren’t focused on design and development. The articles are usually more about politics, society and culture, and where technology fits in. That’s why we (well, Aral) came up with the name, “Laura’s Lens.” (I’m terrible at naming things.) This is a reading list of what I’m using to inform my work at Small Technology Foundation. These are pieces that help me understand topics, connect themes together and learn how to explain key issues. I limit it to one article daily (on weekdays), and I hope you find them as valuable as I do.
