The Computers, Freedom & Privacy Conference began as the Constitutional Convention of Cyberspace. The CFP Video Library Project has been its foremost historian, documenting the struggle to bring intelligence and foresight to our networked future.
A single year in Internet time, it is said, is like ten years anywhere else. Technological generations flip so quickly now that innovation is a daily expectation. But we humans are made of a denser stuff. Our institutions resist change.
Today, we are at a turning point.
Internationally, government legislation about the Net has begun. At this moment, the questions asked so well by CFP's founders have become all the more vital to see and understand. We salute the call from the National Science Foundation's Project ImpactCS to build social impacts and ethics into Computer Science studies, as proposed by the ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Curriculum Task Force. The CFP Video Library is the most comprehensive video resource about these issues.
These tapes enable you to see, hear and feel the passion and wisdom that invite you, your colleagues and students to enter into the debates and creative policy development that are shaping our future. This is history in Internet time, and we are all creating it together.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE PIONEERS WHO ARE CREATING CURRICULA TO EQUIP A NEW GENERATION OF SYSTEMS DESIGNERS WITH A CONTEXT FOR ETHICAL CONSIDERATION. (To be included in the list, see below)
