The New Internationalists

We start with the observation that computing seems to be an international career and that internationalism seems to pull on new professionals.  Behind that internationalism is the realization that we are involved in social endeavor and again our current sense of social enterprise tries to flip the motto, “don’t be evil,” and aim to make good.
