Beyond Ethics — Technological Citizenship in Changing Times

Over the past few years, the relationship between technology, technologists, and the state has come under scrutiny. With many people becoming angry with the unchecked influence that technology has on society and government, people are starting to question the ethical duties of technologists. These discussions are too late. This talk will challenge the audience, and with a radical lens, will explore how something more than simple ethics is needed to address the damage that has already happened—and to mitigate the damage to come.
