it's fucked up that they kept making technology technically better but morally, ethically, aesthetically, and spiritually worse to the point where i don't want to even use anything anymore
@jk Who is "they"?
@z428 the people who are making the technology technically better but morally, ethically, aesthetically and spiritually worse
"What do you call the act?"
@jk Like who?
Many old-time projects have not seen much technical improvement over the decades. Most newer software just repeats the same old mistakes. And some make technically dubious choices.
That said: I agree on the lack of ethics in many cases.
@aeveltstra ah yeah, i see you're focusing on software, which is probably an even worse case, not only is it ethically worse now but also it's technically stagnated since probably the 90s. i think it's probably because the money people realised that you could still make money with terrible software & focusing on the business process was more important than how you actually implemented it
@jk Software is kind-of my thing, so yes, I'll focus on the technological and ethical qualities of that. There's quite a few tech giant companies out there who indulge in profit over people.
@jk If you disparage the Humanities, you end up with only the Inhumanities. And f*cking Facebook.
