I joined De Montfort University in 1983, following a successful industrial career which culminated in being the Computer Services Manager for Thorn EMI. I now combine lecturing, research and consultancy in the management and ethical aspects of computing. I have published and presented papers in many countries about these issues. In 1995 I became the Director of the newly formed Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility. I conceived and co-direct the ETHICOMP conference series on the ethical impacts of IT. I am a member of the Parliamentary IT Committee in the UK, a Fellow of the Institute for the Managment of Information Systems and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

This is a regular column that I write for the IMIS Journal which addresses the social and ethical issues relating to the use of IT in everyday situations. All practising professionals should find this column of interest. Past editions have included discussions on privacy, teleworking, data matching, social responsibility, business process reengineering and training. I would welcome suggestions of topics that you think would be of interest and would also be happy to share an edition with a guest contributor.

Things aren't always what they appear to be!!!

This picture is a fake. The ability to manipulate pictures digitally can be amusing but it can be very damaging, hurtful and deceitful. It is an example of powerful IT that needs to be handled carefully to realise positive effects and not cause harm.
