I have created an Art! This is the Belter Fast Attack Craft "Speak No Lies" on an attack run to a Terran station!

here's their non-apology (sorry, "clarification")
computer science in the modern day has at least as much, if not more, impact than other fields like physics or chemistry.
we understood that physics and chemistry had wild ethical impacts when we invented the atom bomb.
computing hasn't had a similar event; an effective slap in the face to tell us that we need to actually consider the shit we're doing, rather than just inventing things or doing things for the sake of doing it, or because "it's possible".
i'm really hoping we don't need that slap in the face.
