Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a founding member of the Global Network Initiative, and organization which seeks to promote human rights standards in the ICT sector. My new book is "Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom". I hope to network with people interested in similar issues, and also learn from people who have been working on the question of ethics and social responsibility in other business sectors.
