Our responsibility with technology

Many engineers and developers have thought some time that we develop technology, but we don’t decide how this technology interacts with persons. In other words, technology is “neutral”, and people decide how to use it, and which personal and social impact will cause that use. For some minutes, I will try to explain how this is not always true. Besides, in many cases, technology, at least as it is deployed, is very far from being neutral, with respect to how it affects us.
