Microsoft Corporation President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith has committed to providing the U.S. military access to all of its technology. He acknowledges that some employees are apprehensive, but "We want Silicon Valley to know just how ethical and honorable a tradition the military has," he said. Other tech workers say that it isn't the moral dilemma that keeps them from wanting to work with the military. "'It's much more an economics issue,' said Rachel Olney, founder and chief executive of geographic location data start-up Geosite. "Dealing with the U.S. government is extremely time consuming" and often doesn't provide the same kind of profits as commercial work, she said." Microsoft is "going to provide the U.S. military with access to the best technology ... all the technology we create. Full stop," Brad Smith said Saturday during a panel at the Reagan National Defense Forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. Smith expressed openness to hearing his workers' opinions, saying that Microsoft would "engage to address the ethical issues that new technology is creating."
