On July 17, ACM, the Association of Computing Machinery, released an update of its Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct to address the significant advances in computing technology and the degree that these technologies are integrated into our daily lives since the previous version was adopted in 1992. We are Catherine Flick and Michael Kirkpatrick, and we helped guide the process to ensure that the updated ACM Code of Ethics captures the conscience of the profession and reflects the experiences, values and aspirations of computing professionals around the world. Ask us anything about how we ran the Code update effort, specific aspects of the Code, how to interpret the Code, or applying it in your daily lives!

Edit: Our allotted hour is up, however we'll still answer questions, but probably not as quickly as we have been. Please keep them coming, though, they've been great! Thanks everyone who asked something.
