Techno-Ethics: As a Matter of Fax

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Conferees at the University of Alabama technology and ethics conference in early 1990 discussed, among other things, the fear that information sources are being compelled by new technology—rather than human dignity—to develop new services and distribution outlets. Also discussed was the disparity between the media rich and poor in terms of access to such new information technologies as fax newspapers, and the problems these new technologies pose for media practitioners trying to uphold traditional values.
