As usual, a highly stimulating issue (v24i2):
- Engineers without borders by Stephan, K.D. Ethics in international engineering practice. Check out the site for Engineers Without Borders International and the Canadian chapter.
- Internet skeptics: an analysis of intermittent users and net dropouts by Kang, H.; Bagchi-Sen, S.; Rao, H.R.; Banerjee, S. About the digital divide.
- Teaching engineering in a social context by Warhaft, Z. A must-read article about integrating social context issues in engineering education, particularly through the use of case studies on topics like ballistic missle defence.
- Professional licensing and the social transformation of software engineers by Laplante, P.A. Should SE's be licensed like other engineers? Interesting article relating the evolution of the concept of SE licensing to the evolution of the licensing of doctors.
