Thanks for speaking up Andrew. Very good points. I would like to add to this that also choosing to build software that is controlled by a central authority where users have 0 rights it's also something we should keep in mind.
The false COVID news, purchasable votes, promoted racist videos and hate speech are all problems we should be focusing on as software developers these days.
I was writing passionately the last days about the topic, especially trying to explain how design your next app's software architecture without forcing 6 billion people to get news from the same corrupted algorithm.
We need to build an open web, right now the majority of the world is controlled by 3 companies taking orders from few rich politicians.
