About Vardon 🌍
Presenting Sparkable at an event a few years ago. 

My name is Vardon Hamdiu, and I'm co-leading Sparkable, a young nonprofit organization working on a new platform model to counter polarization, hate, and other harms connected to the engagement model.

In the last decade, I worked in the Communications of a Swiss President, lived in South Africa, and worked with refugees. These experiences helped me see the enormous disconnect between the information we consume online and the lived reality of so many people around the world. It made me start Sparkable, an open-source and community-led effort to build a better information environment.

On this site, I publish my thoughts and stories. It makes me leave my comfort zone.

Transparency notes:

  • The texts use social proof to increase trust.
  • The texts reduce the complexity of problems/experiences/reality to minimize cognitive load and increase readability.
  • (I don't like how we're manipulated everywhere, so I'm trying to be as transparent as I can.)
