An award from ACM

The Association for Computing Machinery’s Computers & Society Special Interest Group just honored me with their “Person Who Made a Difference” award. Here’s what it’s about:

Making a Difference Award

This award is presented to an individual who is widely recognized for work related to the interaction of computers and society. The recipient is a leader in promoting awareness of ethical and social issues in computing. The recipients of this award and the award itself encourage responsible action by computer professionals.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime award, which goes to (at most) one person per year.

ACM has printed a biographic summary that highlights the work that led to this award. We’ll probably add an interview soon.

The award presentation and talk will probably be at the Computers, Freedom & Privacy conference in San Jose in June.

I’ll probably also be talking about this work at a QAI meeting in Chicago, this May.
