Information ethics deals with the impact of information and communication technologies on societies and the environment at large as well as with questions dealing with communication media such as mobile phones and navigation services. Issues such as privacy, information overload, internet addiction, digital divide, surveillance and robotics are discussed today particularly from an intercultural perspective. The message of this paper is that information ethics should contribute to address the challenges of the digital age.
