Human Values and the Design of Computer Technology
Distributed for Center for the Study of Language and Information
Bringing together leading researchers and system designers, Friedman addresses fascinating and rich questions in Human Values and the Design of Computer Technology: If human values such as freedom of speech and privacy are controversial, then on what basis do some values override others in the design of technology? How can designers bring value-sensitive design into the workplace and still generate revenue? Friedman’s responses to these questions—and more—offer a clarion call for the embrace of value-sensitive design as part of the computer science culture.
"Interesting and important . . . The chapter on computer bugs and accountability alone is worth the trip (or click) to the bookstore."—Michael L. Gordon, Computing Reviews
