Web Writing, Ownership, Ethics and Power
FRIDAY - JUNE 21, 2013: BLOCK 2: FRI 11:00AM - 12:30PM
STRATEGY SESSION (90 MINUTES) | APPROPRIATE AND ENGAGING FOR ALL AGES | BEGINNER
Writing online, you’re on a knife-edge: you can reach likeminded people and fellow fighters, save a life, educate, represent. Or you may see your words and ideas repeated without your name (or community) attached, enhancing others’ careers while erasing your presence. Online media platforms make easier both the act of authorship and its erasure. In this strategy session, we will break down the ethics of writing and reblogging, and generate guidelines for ourselves and for designers of blogging platforms so they can prevent exploitation and erasure.
