@ekaitz_zarraga @kameleonidas @aral if you are in a position to refuse to do unethical work, you should. what I object to is blaming developers lets the truly guilty off scott free. hey judge, those developers cheated emissions tests of their own volution! i didn’t tell them to do it!

@ekaitz_zarraga @kameleonidas @aral developers need guilds and unions so they have backup to make these ethical calls. if you have a family you might not only be concerned about having a job, you might get backlash too. it’s illegal, but tech companies collude to blackball developers.

@ekaitz_zarraga @kameleonidas @aral another aspect is licensing. a developer doesn’t necessarily know in advance that their software can or will be used in unethical ways.
