Thirsty for the Kingdom

In honor of today's verse of the day, a site feed discovered with David's help, Philippians 2:14-16:

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life–in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.

... I'd like to endorse an excellent piece of reading for your blogroll: HeroicStories: Restoring Faith in Humanity... One Story at a Time. Every few days a new entry is posted containing one short story, and some followup on previous stories. You can see the most recent issue here, receive each one by email, or subscribe to the feed with your favorite blogroll utility.

In your quest for peace and unity, don't forget to add a little positive peer pressure into the mix. Avoiding bad doesn't help if you're not looking for good.

I'd like to summarize my experience of it rather than a comprehensive overview of all of it.Regarding the ethical dilemma of creating technologies that may be used for evil, there are two things to consider:
We need to remain concerned about the big picture and not just the work on our desk. I work in a small division currently which forces me to be aware of the business opportunities and risks rather than just the programming that has been assigned to me. This needs to be equally true of our moral ethics.
The relationships we experience in our work are quite possibly more important than our work may be.
