AbstractThis article discusses the unique professional responsibility engineers face when they are put in a position where they must decided about whether to whistleblow in order to warn the public of safety hazards known only to those inside technological corporations. The author takes a fresh look at whistleblowing in order to draw attention to some neglected issues concerning the moral relevance of personal life to understanding professional responsibilities.
