It’s not all up to government to regulate the tech sector.
It’s up to us in tech as well.
We need to address our sector’s culture head on. IT culture lacks ethics and empathy. There is way too much:
– Greedmanism: the pursuit of money that preempts everything else.
– Tech-bro culture of brutality, elitism, exclusion, and cynicism.
We need to grow up as an industry, get a soul, and lift our game. We are the creators and curators of this tech. We have an obligation to society to self-regulate what we consent to use it for.
