Aurynn, following the release of the latest android vulnerability, in a piece I wish every developer could read:
I am technical enough to do those things, and have. I’m also technical enough to write software, and that power carries ethical responsibilities; am I comfortable building a tool that I know someone will use to cause harm to others? A tool that I know they can’t build without my help?
What about when the act of building software is what causes the harm?
She makes a very valid point, one I haven’t heard off in a while. Ethics. If you never watched it, I would encourage you to get a copy of “Revolution OS”. And compare their words and ethics to those of the current leadership of Google. Hmmmm.
