The Dinosaur and the Butterfly: A Tale of Computer Ethics
September-October 2003 (vol. 1 no. 5)
pp. 61-63
John Lenarcic, RMIT University

Some philosophers would argue, though, that every time we make a choice, ethics are at play. In the immortal words of television's favorite psychiatrist, Frasier's Frasier Crane, "Ethics are what you do when no one is looking."
