Let's look at a few incidents recounted in the book Computer Ethics by Tom Forester and Perry Morrison. (This book covers various ethical issues in computing. It, or something like it, is essential reading for any student of computer science.)
A quick Amazon search reveals this book is relatively dated. Is there something more current out there? Or is this still a worthwhile read for a beginner who intends to become a full-time developer?
(Moderators - feel free to move this to a more appropriate forum)
As always with the wikipedia, YMMV.

Way ahead of you. I ordered a copy off AbeBooks last night for $1. A review I found mentioned that it covered current issues in privacy. I'm sure any pre-Google, pre-Facebook discussion of that issue will be dated, although the underlying principles are probably still good.
I would be interesting whether the book has principles in which anticipate that sort of thing.
