Hi folks,

Thanks for those of you that attended my talk yesterday. There were some great 
questions like how do we resolve axiomatic differences in values (recognizing 
that such differences exist is a start), how do approaches to the design of 
technologies apply to places with different value systems (I’m a fan of 
self-determination), and is there a trade-off between privacy-enhancing 
technologies and the spread of disinformation (maybe, but I worry that this is 
a red-herring that would discredit privacy-by-design technologies writ large 
and assumes a kind of benevolence in those who control the means of 
communication—there’s great work on this by legal scholar Tim Wu). 

I’ve uploaded my slides (jaredmoore.org/assets/state_of_ethics.pdf 
<http://jaredmoore.org/assets/state_of_ethics.pdf>) for those interested. My 
resources page (jaredmoore.org/resources <http://jaredmoore.org/resources>) 
lists a number of the organizations and newsletters I use to stay active in 
this space.

Please follow up with me with any other questions or feedback you might have.
