In this course we attempt to help you develop a concern for,
and awareness of, the impact of the computer and its applications
on the world into which it is being inserted. Many of these
concerns relate to human welfare and the "Big brother"
syndrome which the computer can create. More recently there has
been discussion regarding the development of a "Green
machine", that is a computer which does not have side
effects which impact on the global environment from manufacture
through usage to disposal.
