Joel Spolsky on Twitter, Facebook & news feeds

I appreciated this post from long-time blogger Joel Spolsky on Twitter, Facebook and their ilk.

As software developers and designers, we have a responsibility to the world to think these things through carefully and design software that makes the world better, or, at least, no worse than it started out. And when our inventions spin out of control, we have a responsibility to understand why and to try to fix them.
