Finally, the book is out... "Socrates Reloaded: The Case for Ethics in Business and Technology"
Are you enjoying the articles of B-Eye-Network? The published articles formed the basis of a book, "Socrates Reloaded". Essays with a common theme: how would the old philosophers view modern themes in business and IT.
Light reading, but with a serious intention. Making people think and question what is right and wrong. In times of extreme technology innovation, we simply don't keep up in organizing for the use of new technology. This leads to serious risk of doing the wrong things with technology.
In fact, I don't think it is a very controversial prediction that in the years to come some public officials and executives will have to step down because they didn't think through the consequences of the use of technology for data integration purposes, privacy issues, security issues and plain reputation risk.
We need DEBATE on what is right and wrong. And "Socrates Reloaded" is all about that debate. Pick it up on amazon.com and let me know what you think!
The B-Eye-Network has played an important role in getting the book done. Thank you Jean Schauer and Kerry Flood for all the editing work. And also thank you Rick van der Lans, for making a remark a few years ago that got me going: "best practices are the solutions for yesterday's problems".
