The Computer "Discredit Bureau": An Extension of a Community Information Utility.
Carroll, John M.
The "Discredit" Bureau borrows some of the computerized information-processing techniques adopted by credit-reporting agencies and uses them in the interest of consumers to help them press complaints against suppliers and prospective employers. This is an additional service currently being incorporated into those already afforded by a computer-based voluntary information utility dedicated to community service. It is one phase of a continuing study "in vivo" of the potential role of computing and communications technology in community-wide information interchange. (Author)
