_(Join Us March 24--25 in Cambridge, MA, USA)_
-Medicine, legal, finance, journalism, scientific research—each of these
-fields and many others have widely adopted codes of ethics governing the
-lives of their professionals. Some of these codes may even be enshrined in
-law. And this is for good reason: these are fields that have enormous
-consequences.
-
-Software and technology pervade not only through these fields, but through
-virtually every aspect of our lives. Yet, when compared to other fields, our
-community leaders and educators have produced an ethics void. Last year, I
-introduced numerous topics concerning privacy, security, and freedom that
-raise serious ethical concerns. Join me this year as we consider some of
-those examples and others in an attempt to derive a code of ethics that
-compares to each of these other fields, and to consider how leaders and
-educators should approach ethics within education and guidance.
