Ethics for the Information Age by Michael J. QuinnThis book provides modern coverage of the ethics that surround information technology. It offers readers a timely, balanced and impartial treatment of computer ethics. It introduces ethical theories early and uses them throughout the book to evaluate moral problems related to information technology. Earlier chapters fous on issues concerned with the individual computer user including email, spam, intellectual property, open source movement, free speech and Web censorship. Later chapters focus on issues with greater impact on society as a whole such as privacy, computer and network security, and computer error. The final chapter discusses professionalism and the Software Engineering Code of Ethics. All users of technology who are concerned with understanding the legal, moral and ethical decisions surround that technology.

By beginning with the activity of logging, he means to emphasize the human will to harvest the riches of the vegetable world, a process as common to ancient China as to the forests of his native Northwest. Everything goes, leaves, disappears — is in some way used. Snyder not only actually built ripraps, but he sees a poem as itself constructing what Blake called a limit of contraction, something upon which we can stand and rejoice. The poem plays, it borrows, it crosses cultures, it proceeds by self-questioning. We can see this in its first and in its last line.
