@thelovebug welcome :)
@6gain I love the ones that just say “I don’t know, I bought it for someone else”.
Some ideas on possible ethical principles for the web, shared first with the fediverse:
There is one web
The web is for the betterment of society
The web must support fundamental human rights
The web must enable freedom of expression
The web is for all people
The web must enhance individual agency
People (end users) come first on the web
Accessibility is non-optional
Security & Privacy are non-optional
The web enables individual developers
The web is inspectable
The web must be sustainable

part of the reason I'm always on about open source and intellectual property rights is because I *want* people to build off my ideas/tools and use them as launching pads for their own original thoughts. so truly, I'm thrilled when people "copy" me. it means I've inspired someone! and that's all the impact I can hope for :)

"This is just 'Ethics' and 'Human rights' and things like that."

"Do we have to learn all this?"
"Of course! What do you think this is, software engineering?"
