Technologists living and working in the early 21st Century are shaping the future in ways that few humans have been able to do throughout our long history.
While we have this power, it is essential that we also have a sense of responsibility for the consequences of using that technology. We owe it to present and future generations to think about the consequences.
If you are a technologist, someone involved in the development of technology, this book can give you a new perspective and make you a more competent, more self-aware developer. It can give skills to excel in your chosen field of development.
The Ethical Technologist goes well beyond the usual ethics in IT text. It contains what any self-respecting text on the topic should contain, but then it goes beyond that into the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, comparative religion and more to identify the essence of ethical behaviour.
