In this episodes we veer off into the weeds on ethics, moral­i­ty, and how they relate to tech­nol­o­gy. We talk about some con­tro­ver­sial hap­pen­ings in the tech world regard­ing the Ler­na licens­ing change, and how that relates to the jobs we do every day.

Should we be con­cerned about who uses the things we build, and what they use it for? What’s our line in terms of when some­thing is too egre­gious, and how active should we be in decid­ing what is right and wrong?

This is a long large­ly philo­soph­i­cal dis­cus­sion that touch­es on many of these top­ics. We had some minor audio issues (includ­ing los­ing Michael for a bit), but we hope you’ll bear with them and tune in for the discussion!
