AbstractA forum for discussion of current issues in engineering ethics and current events that have an engineering ethics angle. "Historian of technology Henry Petroski has said that engineers often learn more from failures than from successes. My hope for this forum is that it will serve as a rapid way for knowledgeable people to exchange factual information and insights about matters such as consumer safety issues, disasters and accidents involving engineered products or systems, hazards that need attention drawn to them, official statements concerning controversial issues that involve engineering ethics, and ways engineers can learn from past mistakes and problems."
