    The Politics and Ethics of Technology subforum was retired to The Archive mostly because it wasn't high traffic enough, and didn't fit the new structure we devised as part of the forum reorg in 2015 that well. I'm not against the topic at all and I'd be OK reinstating it if there's demand. Let me start a poll to gauge that.

    There have actually been some active threads that would fit the "Politics and Ethics of Technology" quite nicely.
    For example:

    Oculus/Facebook doing data mining on VR headsets.
    https://forum.beyond3d.com/threads/oculus-rift-and-facebook-data-mining-spawn.57756/

    nVidia putting driver updates under a registration wall, and then the issue of nvidia creating an OS task that sends telemetry data over the internet was also discussed in the thread.
