The Petraeus scandal and computer ethics

Mark Gibbs | Nov. 21, 2012
Last week Gen. David Petraeus, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, resigned in response to what has turned out to be a much bigger scandal than it first appeared.

To be able to give away a "quantity to every school district in the US" will require roughly 1 million copies total, Winn says, and will require something on the order of $4 million, and I think the payoff would be fantastic. At the very least, we'd get some level of national dialogue hopefully involving politicians and policy-makers and start to build a foundation for a more informed, ethical and mature approach to our society's use of computers.

So, check out Winn's Kickstarter pitch, see whether you think this will make an impact, and, if you decide it will, back the project!

Just think, if this book had been published a year ago and had gotten into the hands of government officials, perhaps Petraeus would still be running the CIA.
