Week 10 – Derek Yoshikane

The ethical issue I am always concerned myself with is the right to privacy. It seems as if you have to give that up if you want your information to be accessible to others. You could create an online persona, like many people do. I make my posts with caution and often filter my initial […]

Week 10: Lindsey Newkirk

I have a slightly different consideration about ethics that came up for me as I wrapped up Spreadable Media and was thinking about the wide variety of content that I interact with on web 2.0. I’ve been talking recently with friends about our increasingly limited capacity to deal with negative media. I’m a true believer […]

Week 10: Scott Anderson

One area of ethics that jumped out at me in this class related back to my group project. Going into this project, I did not think there would be many ethical dilemmas that my group would face, simply because of our content.

In fact, several times when the authors of Spreadable Media described topics as ethical dilemmas, I felt unmoved. For example, the alleged problem of corporations benefiting […]

Week 10: Brett Harmon

The topic of ethics is always a tricky one because there is always some kind of opposing forces that are exerting their will on what seems to be “right” There is of course the overall ethics of Journalism that we should in some way adhere to, but then there are also your personal ethics which […]

Week 10: Mike Plett – ethical questions

I think it’s interesting that Helen asked us to think about ethical questions this week since that was the subject of yesterday’s Foundations of Strat Comm class. We discussed the ethics of ghost blogging and learned that PR industry professionals and the general public have very different expectations when it comes to ghostwriting, especially when […]
