A student of mine once wrote an amazing essay about how increased efficiency always means we use more, not less. Here's Low Tech with a great article on the topic.

A transition to renewable energy is meaningless if we don't topple our culture of consumption. That's a crucial part of my #solarpunk philosophy.

"[Street Complete] app finds incomplete and extendable data in your vicinity and displays it on a map as markers. Each of those is solvable by answering a simple question to complete the info on site.

The info you enter is then directly added to the OpenStreetMap in your name, without the need to use another editor."

Suggestion to strictly hierarchical, for-profit companies that produce proprietary software: for a couple of months, try to respect your values. Prevent cooperation and knowledge sharing among employees. Then, switch to business as usual, create and publish a comparative analysis. I think that the findings would be interesting.
