    Heidegger's reading of the essence of Technik is beset with a fatal ambiguity between technology and technique, which can be traced back further to an ambiguity lodged in the heart of Aristotle's metaphysical concept of power. This unresolved ambiguity, in turn, is intimately related to the historical cover-up of the twofold in the manifold of being between whatness (quiddity) and whoness (quissit... View full abstract»

    Technology is a source of risk. Technology is a risk not only because it often has unintended consequences, but also because accelerating technological change creates compound risks resulting from multiple interacting technologies. More importantly, a fast changing technological environment introduces additional risk because of the numerous social, economic, and political opportunities it creates,... View full abstract»

    Trust is modeled in many disciplines as a key factor in determining if entities cooperate with each other. In the social sciences, particularly within the social, economic, and environmental domains, trust has received considerable attention as the key element to building sustainable societies. However, in the networking and telecommunications fields, trust-based approaches to developing sustainab... View full abstract»

    In this article we introduce the concept of a human information appliance as a merging of advanced information technologies architectures (Martin Libicki) - Jeff Raskin's 1978 idea of an "information appliance" - and advancing science and engineering in cybernetics (the fusion of human and machine into a hybrid entity. That we create this technology/entity for the purpose of conducting and advanci... View full abstract»

  • Teaching Social Responsibility for the Conduct of Research

    In this essay I draw on the history of engineering and research ethics, and on the way priorities in those disciplines were established in the United States, to discuss how we should teach social responsibility in research ethics. Following Deborah Johnson, I use the term ?social responsibility? in the sense of having a moral obligation ?to protect the safety and welfare of society? [1]-[3].1 I fo... View full abstract»

    Ethical training in the classroom offers engineering students the opportunity to assess theoretical frameworks and consider crucial diverse perspectives that they can apply in the workplace. With practice, and exposure to decision-making processes supported by ethical theory, students can develop the agility to consider dilemmas from multiple ethical perspectives in order to make more astute decis...

  • Gravitating to "the new shiny thing": Meaning, emotions, and tablets

    Technology continuously revolutionizes the way people interact with information technology (IT). In this article we argue that, while extant literature has certainly provided rich insights into meaning making with IT artifacts, the tablet's proliferation calls for reassigning the significance these may hold for users. Approaching user experience as subjective, we seek to explore the relationship i... View full abstract»
