For the last four decades much of the world’s most advanced technical resources have been devoted to military systems; but with the end of the Cold War economic and technical resources are being freed to yield the so‐called ‘peace dividend’. This promotes the possibility of a more ethical orientation to many information technologists’ work, and also represents the chance to argue for, and develop, more socially useful and responsible applications of computer technology, in accordance with the development of professional ideals and standards within the computing industry.
