Our DML team has a book club that meets monthly, and we are reading through the book, Honorable in Business: Business Ethics from a Christian Perspective by Annetta Gibson and Daniel Augsburger (publisher is Wipf and Stock, so guess who helped us get these books! That's right - my husband, Michael!). It's been a great book to read together and we've enjoyed the discussions.
This past chapter was about privacy, property, and technology, and we were amazed to read the "Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics" written in 1992 by the Computer Ethics Institute because they are still so applicable today especially with social media and the internet! How often do we not see "bearing false witness" as well as stealing on the internet from Christians and nonChristians alike? Not to mention the regularity of disrespect for each other. It's time for a recommitment to these wise words! It's time to remember "Netiquette!"
