Not the ones I build. I pick who I work for with more care than I've come to understand that most people can afford. I count myself lucky I guess for that and am not issuing that statement in judgment of people who don't have that luxury. But I will not write certain kinds of code, nor assemble certain kinds of hardware, and hardware or software that is designed to surveil people without their continuous/ongoing consent is not something I'm willing to take part in creating.

When I was young I was less selective, and after the fact I learned that some of the productivity software I had contributed to was being used to help companies abuse their workers.

Never again. I will walk away in the middle of a project before I do something like that again.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
