Many frameworks, declarations, regulations, and consumer bills of rights have been put forth to help prepare and adapt society to the digital information age. Many of these have targeted privacy, security, and trust. Very few have addressed the wide gamut of ethical computing values directly. My draft proposal for an ethical computing framework is as follows:
"Only the free-wheeling artist-explorer, nonacademic, scientist-philosopher, mechanic, economist-poet who has never waited for patron-starting and accrediting of his coordinate capabilities holds the prime initiative today. If man is to continue as a successful pattern-complex function in universal evolution, it will be because the next decades will have witnessed the artist-scientist’s spontaneous seizure of the prime design responsibility and his successful conversion of the total capability of tool-augmented man from killingry to advanced livingry—adequate for all humanity." -- R. Buckminster Fuller
"It is not for me to change you. The question is, how can I be of service to you without diminishing your degrees of freedom?" -- R. Buckminster Fuller
"Make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone." -- R. Buckminster Fuller
