⚠ Fair warning: please DO NOT start with season 1 episode 1 of Black Mirror! Start with season 3, and go forward. If you like those, dip into season 2 and the just-released season 4, then the rest. But humor me and please at least watch the first episode of season 3

Software is easy to change, but people ... aren't. So in the new year, as software developers, let's make a resolution to focus on the part we can change, and keep asking ourselves one very important question: how can our software help people become the best version of themselves?

It should be noted that no ethically-trained software engineer would ever consent to write a DestroyBaghdad procedure. Basic professional ethics would instead require him to write a DestroyCity procedure, to which Baghdad could be given as a parameter.

I didn't choose to be a programmer. Somehow, it seemed, the computers chose me. For a long time, that was fine, that was enough; that was all I needed. But along the way I never felt that being a programmer was this unambiguously great-for-everyone career field with zero downsides. via Pocket

The quest to do this - to serve man, with software - is consuming a lot of my spare thought cycles.

Great post and reflections from Jeff Atwood. His thoughts reflect many of the people building things in tech. I think it’s a good thing that people are becoming more introspective on the systems that they create, and asking questions about the value they are bringing.

> Software is easy to change, but people … aren't. So in the new year, as software developers, let's make a resolution to focus on the part we _can_ change, and keep asking ourselves one very important question: **how can our software help people become the best version of themselves?**

File this into that area of computer ethics that should become part of computer science curriculums.

Fellow programmers, please read Jeff Atwood's call to arms and ask yourself "Are we the bad guys?" more often.
