As issues about Internet surveillance and online copyright infringement as well as questions of human cloning and genetically-engineered foods increasingly feature in our national headlines, a Website such as the Washington-based Center for the Study of Technology and Society is a valuable resource for staying informed. The Website features sections entitled Government and Politics, Biotechnology, Special Focus on Who Watches the Web, National Security, Personal Security, Creativity, Convergence (defined as "the intersection of communication, computers, the Internet, invisible computing and television"), and more. These sections offer a wealth of annotated links to statistics, news, and commentary from publications, institutions, and advocacy organizations on the Internet, as well as statements by the Center's staff. The Center is a nonprofit think tank whose mission is "to emphasize and clarify the point that advances in technology are neither inherently good nor inherently evil - but that every new technology has the potential to cause problems, and the capacity to solve problems."
