Colloquium Description

The rapid emergence of the Internet and development of computing and information technologies have brought with them many new ethical issues.  How do ubiquitous computing and networking affect our sense of moral responsibility in society? What does ethics require of us as computer users and developer of programs and internet content? In this course, we will study topics including ethics in information technology, computer and Internet crimes, privacy and anonymity issues, freedom of expression, and the impact of information technology on productivity and quality of life. Our collective goals will be to develop our own ‘Ten Commandments for the Digital Age.’ We will use Ethics in information technology by George Reynolds along with other scholarly articles and case studies such as wikileaks to explore the topics and questions raised.
