New technologies can have immense ethical effects. I wondered — what is the ethical analog of a dependency? How can software developers and other technologists make sure their work is deployed in accordance with a certain set of values? Wampum.codes is my way of exploring that idea. It’s a podcast named after wampum, the craft of weaving beads into patterns that represent contracts and other agreements, and was practiced by my tribe (Seneca-Cayuga Haudenosaunee) for many years. On the show, I interview Native people from my own tribe and many others, who are using technology to share their values with the world. I interview Native people who are using technology to share their values with the world. [This session / art and media piece is hosted on a third party website.]
