Bookmark: "The era of sociopaths is over"

Sebastian Greger


The web can no longer be a career choice for people who want to work in a field where there are no obligations, no ethics, no rules, and no constraints.

Heather Burns once and for all dismissing the legend of the martyr techie tortured by ever-increasing regulation around them:

If you don’t believe that the code, the projects, and the people you ship into the world should work within a space defined by obligations, ethics, rules, and constraints, you’re not a visionary, an innovator, or an influencer. You’re a sociopath.

I'm Sebastian, Sociologist and Interaction Designer. This journal is mostly about bringing toge­ther social science and design for inclusive, privacy-focused, and sustainable "human-first" digital strategies. I also tend to a "digital garden" with carefully curated resources.

My occasionally sent email newsletter has all of the above, and there is of course also an RSS feed or my Mastodon/Fediverse profile.
