  1. Pelsak, Floridi, Prasad, and Oloko each raise a variety of concerns about software quality and its relationship to ethics and software development. Furthermore, Andreessen and Patel make clear that software has and will continue to shape the world as we know it. Accordingly Pelsak holds that “poor software quality presents an ethical issue for society.” We might then ask: to what degree are software developers responsible for the quality of software? What moral principles seem to be of concern to the authors above? Please be sure to define your terms and give examples.
