In addition, the weekly discussion on ethics and technology have helped me understand what it takes to be a good digital citizen and what the future of technology may look like. For instance, from our discussion on Facebook’s algorithm, I now understand how my user behavior affects the bubble of news I live in and what information is hidden from me. In addition, our discussion on cashless business made us question the assumption that progress is inherently good and be more aware of those who are left behind. Overall, this term has let me further develop skills as a programmer and tools to navigate the complex technological world of today.
