Keynote: For the Users - tech, ethics and you

Avatar of Mark Nottingham Mark Nottingham

More than ever, tech's impact on the world is being felt in 2020, and the world is pushing back, strongly. Governments want to regulate the Internet (or create whole new ones), even as a handful of companies wield massive power over the network's future.

What role should we play in these discussions -- as technologists, as Open Source contributors, as employees of tech companies, and not least as citizens? Should we just be diligent craftsman who focus on the task at hand, or take a more active, broad role? And who do we write all of this code for, anyway?
