Law: Free Speech and Censorship

 

John Perry Barlow is a retired Wyoming cattle rancher, a former lyricist for the Grateful Dead, and co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Since May of 1998, he has been a Fellow at Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet and Society

His manifesto, A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace has been widely distributed on the Net and can be found on more than 20, 000 sites. Partly as a consequence of that, he was called "the Thomas Jefferson of Cyberspace" by Yahoo Internet Life Magazine back when such cyber-hyperbole was fashionable.

Computing Cases

Ethics and Computing - Kevin Bowyer, University of Notre Dame The field of "Ethics and Computing" encompasses a lot of territory. Courses in this area may be taught in programs such as Information Systems, Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Material in this area may be taught as a stand-alone course and/or as modules in courses throughout the curriculum. Whatever teaching responsibility you have related to this area, the materials here should help you to teach ethics and computing in a way that provides rigorous, relevant and effective learning experiences for your students.
