I really wish the opposition would stop referring to "killing grandma", it's so offensive and so far from any possible result of the exemption
Kate McClellan, Keon Zemoudeh and Jef Pearlman are all doing an awesome job, so proud to be part of the coa
The opposition just acknowledged that there's no real difference between medical devices that are implanted versus external ones. So some reasonable agreement on movement already!

We had a year to design a fair rollout of vaccine appointments and we just didn't even try. This is where ethics in tech comes in. This is why we need to train us all to ask from day one "how do we make sure everybody has access?" That didn't happen anywhere, as far as I can tell, and everywhere you look, vax access reflects the same patterns of privilege as every other precious thing in our society. It's a huge failure for tech ethics.

This award is so well deserved. It's hard to imagine what my career would look like without Bradley. His passion, insight, diligence and moral compass are invaluable. His acceptance speech is worth watching too. Congratulations, Bradley!
Side agreements, edits to the agreements themselves & clarifications (that no goods or services are being delivered, for example or that no confidential information will be shared) are all possible but we're often told we're the only ones who ask for this.
