NETFUTURE -- Technology and Human Responsibility for the Future

E-zine Description:

The netfuture list has a focus similar to the well-known and estimable comp.risks newsgroup, with this difference: netfuture looks beyond the generally recognized "risks" of computer use such as privacy violation, unequal access, and dangerous software 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 can become material for public discussion and policy-making. As we wait for the second wave of Internet backlash, what better to do than try to understand the forces that have propelled the Net so dramatically onto center stage amid near worship on the one hand, and (among a few) something more like dread?
