This weeks principle is:
We, as nonprofit-focused technology professionals, pledge to:
1. Do No Harm to Data or Devices Containing Data
Jenny Council made a great comment on the affinity group blog, saying among other things: "I have done harm to data ... and I can't pledge I won't again. I can pledge to never intentionally harm data, or to do my utmost to care for devices containing data."
That would work for me, to include "intentionally". I also think about the pledge doctors take - "First do no harm". Doctors sometimes do harm, but generally it is not intentional, yet they still pledge not to.
What do you think? Is "intentionally" implied?
When commenting please remember:
is just a baseline – version 1.0. There will likely be future editions,
so this doesn’t need to be perfect for all time, just a solid start.
principles need to be applicable to all nonprofit technology
professionals, including nonprofit staff, consultants, technology
support organizations, vendors, and volunteers.
The principles need to be applicable across areas of focus, US geographic region, specialty, services and tools.
- Further details will be articulated by the community in “What These Mean to Me” documents posted in the library. So these need not incorporate all the details they imply.
