Here are my writings about ethics and information technology. They comprise: Books, Reports, Book Chapters, Conference Presentations, and Articles (papers) published in, mostly, peer-reviewed journals.
Peer-reviewing is important to academics. It is their way of getting validation. However, the worth of any piece of writing ought to be measured by its cogency and coherency; by it’s usefullness to you.

In 2008 John Weckert and I did a major report into ethics in the ICT Industry. Here are the results:
There were a couple of papers written from this report. See if you can find them in the articles section.
In 2010 I was a researcher for a National Science Foundation report, Security and Privacy: Global Standards for Ethical Identity Management in Contemporary Liberal Democratic States. See the acknowledgements section of that report. I was principally involved in the Securitization Technologies section.
