Ethical  Dilemmas  in  Information   Technology: 
A Scenario Collection


You are invited to contribute to this collection.
As an IT professional you may one day be called upon to make a difficult ethical decision.  Not an abstract academic judgement - but a real decision that has real consequences - for real people.  It is difficult to prepare for this but is certainly advisable to ensure that you have thought about some of the likely issues beforehand.   

This knol collection is intended to support this by providing scenarios for study and discussion. You are also invited to contribute to the collection by commenting on the existing scenarios or adding new ones.
