No new elements or insights for me

2 stars

Key point is made at the beginning I think, where it puts mediation theory (Peter-Paul Verbeek, Univ of Twente) in the center. The rest of the book had me nodding along but no new elements for me (plenty new examples for me though) Chapter 9 doesn't in my eyes provide actual guidance for coders/devs, other than generics. Probably good as an intro into the subject, as an eye opener for devs that dev work is never neutral, at best, and actively detrimental at worst if ethics don't factor into it right from the start.
