Where do we see our responsibility, where do we see others’ responsibilities? And how do companies fit in here? I’m asking this myself quite a lot and yet couldn’t find a definitive answer. And with governments needing to make rules for how autonomous cars should behave in case of an incident, we can see how advanced technology can bring this topic to another dimension. We leave our kids in front of the TV, we give them our smartphones or let them use computers but don’t really know what effects it has on our children. Google now offers a premium network service tier where you can pay for a faster network—and I wonder what that means for net neutrality. I mean, there are reasonable arguments why you’d offer such service and it’s reasonable to charge more money for faster service. On the other hand, it locks out other people and could be seen as offense to net neutrality. The only thing I can say for sure is: We need to find our own stand, our own path and defend it by advocating other people, by discussing the topics in a kind way with other human beings. No hate speech or blaming will help us create a better world but only reasonable, enjoyable changes.
