A Hippocratic Oath for Techies and Policy-Makers: Please Contribute

A friend of mine, Max Senges, has developed a deeply interesting proposal for an individual morality-based approach to ensuring human rights and human dignity in making codes and making law.

Several important Internet luminaries have commented since and the proposal is now available here for public discussion.

What do you think? What ethical standards to you adhere to, when making code - or making laws? Share what motivates you and see whether your concerns are reflected in Max's proposal. If not, consider collaborating on a finished draft.

I'll keep you posted about the Oath's progress.
