    The use of computers in organizations is discussed in terms of its present and potential roles in facilitating and mediating communication between people. This approach clarifies the impact that computers may have on the operation of organizations and on the individuals comprising them. Communication, which is essential to collaborative activities, must be properly controlled to protect individual and group privacy, which is equally essential. Our present understanding of the human and organizational aspects of controlling communication and access to information lags behind our technical ability to implement the controls that may be needed.

    Recent publications raise the possibility that a limited nuclear war could result in global effects that might cause the extinction of most biological species. During the past four decades, this possibility has not been considered in publications which represented a consensus of ``official'' scientific opinion. The implications for scientific credibility are discussed. View full abstract»

  • The Present Predicament and a Scientific Solution

    The present period, called the scientific revolution, is characterized by the dominant factors of science and its prodigy child, technology. There is a mismatching of impedance as the power and, consequently, decision-making, are held by people ignorant in science and technology. The human quest for the truth follows three stages: mythological, ideological and scientific. Present power holders base their decisions upon ideology rather than science, with the resulting evils of terror of thermonuclear extinction, poverty, crime, unemployment and other miseries afflicting the human family. A modern economotechnic system should incorporate the amplifiers of production, namely, scientific graduate education and R&D. In this, the scientific graduate education is the derivative of R&D and R&D is the derivative of hard goods and services of production. Analysis of this system suggests that in order to achieve a high standard of living one must have a highly trained work force, a strong scientific graduate education and a strong R&D establishment. To achieve the foregoing the present scientifically blind controllers of the economotechnic system should be replaced by highly trained scientists and engineers. View full abstract»
