Right mindfulness (of what's going on), right intention, right effort… Does this sound familiar? In a Buddhist-oriented collection, it would, to most followers.

« You can’t help Uber build Greyball during the day, or help Palantir design databases to round up immigrants as your main gig, and then buy ethics offsets by doing a non-profit side hustle. We need you to work ethically during that day job much more than we need you working with that non-profit. »

Start asking questions about who benefits from what you’re building. Start asking questions about who gets hurt by what you’re building. And take a look at your team._ »

That!
