We hate plutocratic, winner-takes-all capitalism. Our mission is to protect global democracies by creating and supporting a new generation of local-minded middle-class workers.

As you can tell from reading about our products and services, we care deeply about building things that make the world a bit more fair. We want to create value for the average person, without forcing them to learn how to code. We want to provide the world with access to new and innovative ways to earn a stable income.

We don’t think wealth inequality is merely unfair; we think it’s actually economically inefficient, and that it restricts innovation. Rather than waiting for governments and politicians to solve these problems, we’re building scalable solutions of our own, and providing our customers with economic advantages in the process.

Blog

A great resource for understanding what’s going on in our world is our Blog. We regulary cover the tech industry, the global economy, and a wide variety of other topics.

About the Publisher

Locadot is published by Numair Faraz. Prior to Locadot, Numair spent a decade researching how to create platforms that could scale to solve the emerging problems created by the digital revolution. Numair has advised senior executives at Motorola, BlackBerry, and other companies. Numair is a longtime resident of Malibu, California, with long periods of time spent living in Denmark, Australia, and other countries with strong social safety nets and high wages for the working class.

In a previous life, Numair hung out with the Silicon Valley elite, including the founders of many of today's billion-dollar tech icons. Finding himself questioning the ethics and motivations of these people, his current social circle is comprised of construction workers, schoolteachers, chefs, writers, painters, grocery workers, farmers, homeless surfers and others for whom the tech industry’s visions of a “hyper-connected, AI-driven future” are more of a dystopian nightmare than a profitable fantasy.
