Members of a true computing profession must look beyond the problems they are paid to solve, paying heed to how their profession and the world at large affect each other. The future health of the computing profession depends on its members taking an interest in issues outside its body of knowledge and skills. These issues fall into three classes, those that relate to: the profession itself; the constraints that might pr should be imposed on the profession by the external community; and the profession's effect on the external community.
