Cover Quote: October 1990

Destruction of data or property, disruption of facilities depended upon by others, loss of time, physical harm, and loss of life are problems of ethics.…

Ethical guidelines [for computer networks] are more difficult to construct than ones for etiquette, but a few plausible ones are given here.

Observe copyrights.…

Cite sources.…

Be careful with private correspondence.…

Be honest.…

Someone is paying the bills.…

Don’t post harmful instructions or information.…

Resource sharing services are not like anything else.…

People depend on networks and conferencing systems.…

Don’t leave a security hole unfixed.…

Don’t use security holes to cause damage.…



- John S. Quarterman
The Matrix: Computer Networks and Conferencing Systems Worldwide, 1990
