Technopanics: Moral Panics about Technology

Why is everyone all a-panic about the Internet and the (sometimes) deviant behavior it might seem to enable? This fine OpenCourseWare offering from Professor Marcella Therese Szabiewicz takes a look at a "number of technopanics" of late. The course begins by looking at how similar panics about "old" media (books, films, and the like) set historical precedents for these current fears. Visitors can look over the syllabus, check out the full course calendar, and also download all of the course materials in one fell swoop. A selection of the readings are available online for free and visitors will appreciate the detailed nature that the syllabus offers. [KMG]

Internet Archive: Computers & Technology

This particular corner of the Internet Archive brings together a variety of videos about computing and technology, paying special attention to two television programs from the 1980s and 1990s: Computer Chronicleand Net Cafe.  Computer Chronicles was hosted by Stewart Cheifet and it was produced from 1983 to 2002. Visitors can watch many of these episodes and might start by looking at a profile of Bill Gates from 1998 and a rather interesting show on the possibilities of virtual reality. Visitors can also look over the rather cool Staff Picks area where they can watch shows on the Commodore 64 and MIDI Music. Net Cafe was produced from 1996 to 2002 and visitors can watch archived episodes of it as well. [KMG]\

Deeplinks: Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has crafted this great resource for people interested in the world of online rights and privacy matters. A quick glance through the site will reveal a range of key commentaries on issues of copyright, moral privacy rights, and government intervention. Visitors can scroll through recent posts and then look over some of their additional projects, which include Bloggers' Rights, and HTTPS Everywhere. Also, visitors can offer comment and search posts by keywords, such as "International,” "Copyright,” and "Free Speech.” It's an exciting new project and one that will be of great interest to policy aficionados and others.
