Ethics in Silicon Valley?
from the not-an-oxymoron dept
This one is something of a good surprise. It’s a story about a Silicon Valley which is trying really hard to be ethical about the way they do business even to the point of hiring an “ethicist”. The down side to this story is that it’s such a surprise that a company can be ethical. People seem to naturally expect companies to be evil – and that includes the company they work for. I don’t think that’s a particularly productive mind set. Update: Here’s an article about AOL’s Steve Case pushing for more socially responsible companies.
