You can make apps and websites, you can prototype beautiful stuff out of thin air within minutes, you can code UI animation, and maybe even ride your bike without handlebars. You are creating things that are changing the future. And you love making things–simply because you can. But are you responsible for your creations? Are you sure you’re not bringing evil into the world? Let’s talk design ethics.
