Disclaimer: CSE303 discusses the societal implications of computing. Doing so inherently requires discussing political topics, which requires bringing up and linking to opinions. We are expressly not interested in promoting any particular viewpoint. The links on this page are probably to accurate information, but the course staff is not necessarily better trained to make that judgment than anybody else.
