Title: We shouldn't be surprised that there's “bad tech”

Abstract: The story of the computing industry, particularly Silicon Valley, usually focuses on the brilliant whiz-kid in a garage who came up with something new and cool, found a few people to back it, and used it to make life better for everyone Let's look behind that story at the uglier reality of parts of the development of our field, the impact of some of the "don't be evil" businesses, and choices that face people entering computing today.
