That's a good explanation, Nancy. It goes along with the simple notion I once heard, that we have to remember we are responsible for any new object we introduce into the world.

"Responsible innovation represents an attempt to think through the ethical and social complexities of these technologies before they become mainstream" sounds like a much needed concept that would cross all disciplines and benefit society by encouraging intelligent and informed implementation of ideas. Often we plunge ahead with an idea without fully exploring its ramifications or understanding the full range of consequences that can occur and it seems to me that responsible innovation from its description is a start at curtailing what is often destructive behavior in the guise of progress...

I think this is a really good idea. I know this idea of responsibility seems to be on the minds of researchers and those observing the scientific and technical fields more and more, and it will be good to have a forum for discussing what responsibility means and broaching topics that researchers themselves may have difficulty talking about.
