socrates morality and design

Today we watched an interesting TED Talk by Sebastian Deterding. He discussed how the design of something has effects, both intentional and unintentional. How unintended negative consequences can come from the most well intended of ideas. He also brings up the question of morality and how what you intend to be good may be seen as harmful to someone else with a different set of values.
