THREE COMMANDMENTS FOR TECHNOLOGY OPTIMISTS

https://www.wired.com/story/ideas-jason-pontin-three-commandments-for-technologists/

  1. Design technologies to swell happiness. A corollary: Do not create technologies that might increase suffering and oppression, unless you’re very sure the technology will be properly regulated.
  2. In regulating new technologies, balance costs and benefits, and work with your fellow citizens, your nation’s lawmakers, and the world’s diplomats to enact reasonable laws that limit the potential damage of a new technology, as further evidence is forthcoming.
  3. The best technologies have utility but also provide fresh scientific insights. Prioritize those.
