Conclusion

So, how are we doing? Unfortunately, we're still too focused on computer science topics and not enough on sociology ones. Ralph Gomory, back when he directed IBM Research, said that real problems, the ones you encounter when you rub shoulders with people out in the world, stimulate the most interesting research advances. What can you do to help? Get out of your office. Collaborate with someone who's not a computer scientist or engineer. Think about the overall outcomes and interactions of technology, policy, and the behavior of people, and then act accordingly.

Erratum

In the July/August 2005 Conference Reports department, EICAR should have been correctly identified as the European Institute for Computer Anti-Virus Research. We regret the error.
