Abstract

This paper argues that the digital revolution has undoubtedly changed the way we live and work for the better. It presents examples from a British context where a deep transformation has taken place and points particularly at the speed and consequences of such change. The paper highlights some of the steps that are being taken to avoid the negative impact on society as a whole. These include regulation, together with individual and parental responsibility. It concludes with a warning that ethical dilemmas pertaining to the use of digital technologies are far from being solved; particularly the issue of who regulates the regulators. In other words where do we turn to when political and industry leaders are the ones who are infringing the moral code of digital technology usage.
