This paper proposes a three dimensional model representing the IT territory, with a view to incorporating ethical professional practice as integral to the discipline. The evolving nature of the IT discipline is mapped along Information-Technology and Developer-User continuums and the ethical nature of the IT profession is mapped along an Inward-Outward continuum. Suggested uses for the model include a reconceptualising of the IT professional space, guidance for ethical formation and support, and inspiration for individual and organisational standards.
