💙 Ethical design in tech

Bridget Community Manager Oct 20, 2020

It's no secret that the tech sector has built (and is building) processes and systems that exclude vulnerable users by designing “nudges” that influence users, users who end up making privacy concessions they probably shouldn’t.

Read more about the ethics of this problem here, and to see one of my all-time favorite memes :).

Let me know what your take is on ethical design in tech, and also be sure to post a funny cartoon/meme in the comments below.

What one person might find ethical, another might not.

If a person (or company) releases a product with potentially dark patterns, they should be transparent (when possible and practical) with its users on why the product is designed in a specific way. I do love Atlassian's take on this: "Don't forget to show your work".
