This site is mostly notable for its link to a response to UNESCO's call for contributions on Algorithm Literacy and Data Literacy (via a Medium post). Authored by Doug Belshaw, Ian O'Byrne, and Tom Salmon (not three authors I would have associated, but hey (they "met a decade ago when collaborating with a global community on v0.1 to v1.5 of Mozilla's Web Literacy Map")), the response argues "efforts to describe what digital literacies and 'good AI'  (ethical, responsible, healthy) look like suggests that these should be theoretically grounded and stakeholder driven to ensure efforts shift norms and enrich lives." Again, I probably wouldn't have strongly associated ethics and literacy, but once again, hey.
