What are the questions, controversies, and answers surrounding computing’s impact on: Users; Privacy; Systems, Models and Simulations; Planning; Security; Employment; Global Power Shifts; Professionalization and Responsibility; Developing Countries; the Political Process; Antitrust actions; Values; …the issues, domains are endless and growing?
What are your views, your burning passions and how do they compare with the pioneers below?
These questions and more were anticipated by the famed scientists, Kelly Gotlieb and Allan Borodin. With 2013 being the 40th anniversary of the publication of their seminal book, “Social Issues in Computing,” a few people were invited to contribute articles for the University of Toronto’s anniversary celebration blog commenting on this pioneering work.
