Explicit attention to computer ethics began with Norbert Weiner's (1950) groundbreaking book, The Human Use of Human Beings . The teaching of computer ethics arguably started in the 1970s with the distribution of Walter Maner's Starter Kit in Computer Ethics and the publication of Deborah Johnson's seminal text Computer Ethics ,  (see Bynum  for a short history).
