The net and you

I thought that some of you might be interested to know that there is a newsletter about the net: "NetFuture: Technology and Human Responsibility". I haven't actually had a chance to do much more then browse through some, but it sounds good:

NetFuture is an electronic newsletter with postings every two-to-four weeks or so. It looks beyond the generally recognized "risks" of computer use such as privacy violations, unequal access, censorship, and dangerous computer glitches. It seeks especially to address those deep levels at which we half-consciously shape technology and are shaped by it. What is half-conscious can, after all, be made fully conscious, and we can take responsibility for it.
Granted, it's been on a rather long hiatus, but hopefully, now that it's finally back, it will publish more regularly.
