The Forum on January 19: New Technologies and Their Ethical Implications. New technologies are all around us. They’re in our cars, in our pockets, and managing the world around us. These new technologies generally make our lives safer, more efficient, and more convenient. But with concerns about privacy, their impact on children, and a world where the poor have less access to technology, have we really been able to assess the ethical implications of new technologies? We can do lots of things, but should we? Led Dr. Jefferson Huang, the new President of The St. Paul’s Schools in Booklandville and former Vice President & Professor of Philosophy at Claremont McKenna College. He has advised executives at Google/Alphabet and Schmidt Futures on the ethical aspects of technology.
Sustaining Members Thank You Party on Saturday, January 25: If you are already a Sustaining Member then be sure to RSVP to the Rev. Mary Luck Stanley (email@example.com, 443-838-0622). If you are not a Sustaining Member yet – you can become one and come to this fabulous party! A “Sustaining Member” makes two commitments as part of the pledging process. First, Sustaining Members let us know that they wish to make a “roll over” or “evergreen” pledge that will automatically renew from year to year. Secondly, Sustaining Members will set up an Automatic Payment Plan so that pledge payments will be made throughout the year. Thank you for your consideration in this type of giving. If you would like to be a sustaining member please contact Mary Luck Stanley.
