For those who know me, and who have long endured my friendship, you’ll know I bang on about ethics, and particularly tech ethics, a lot. Just look at the Tech for Good Live podcast if you want an example, or watch this talk that I gave at UX Copenhagen. A bit of a warning though – the conference was run remotely due to Covid-19, so there is a lot of my face in the video.
Back to ethics… I was even talking about it before it was cool. Although, if it is cool now, why am still so alone? I guess that’s a question best left for another day.
Here’s the thing, it’s easy to call out Twitter and Facebook as being awful (they are). It’s easy to say that Jeff Bezos is a piece of human garbage (he is). It’s easy to delete Uber for their treatment of their
employees freelance-workers-who-are-very-happy-with-their-job-and-lack-of-benefits. There’s a load of great, fun people you can follow who will call those big tech ass-hats out all day.
