Topic 1 : Introductions
I really enjoyed the Vark Learning style quiz which was pretty right on the dot for me. In taking the quiz it also made me a little more aware to stay focused on how I learn and work best so that I get the most out of this class.
I also like the what color is your brain quiz. I think starting off with the personal assements and these quiz's was a great way to start this course. Both these quiz's were right on for me.
I also like the web media on the 20 basic rules for how to conduct yourself online. Also I had never heard of or even thought about digital citizenship really and so this was very very helpful for me
Topic 2: Privacy and Freedom of Speech
This audio recording of Jon Xavier, digital producer at Silicon Valley Business Journal, gives suggestions on how to make your private information more private and secure. The idea to you the private search engine start page, duck duck go was cool because their are no tracking of information you search. So the government cant go and ask them for information on users.
The selected media which was a link to duck duck go website was awesome to have and I use it normally now. Why would we not use this private search engines and why are we empowering google everyday giving up our privacy and security when we dont have to. Its as if since we are use to google and its easy and we know it we are willing to give up our privacy and security which is ridiculous.
The video of Cybercrime expert Mikko Hypponen and the three types of cybercrime attacks we should be aware of was very informative. It was interesting that Germany required people with typewritters to register with the government. The US did not believe this and thought it violated our ammendment rights. However really today when you but a printer when you print up there are certain images etc. that track it to your printer. So we are still bring tracked and loosing our ammendment rights. No one seems to care or pay attention to it though.

Privacy and Freedom of Speech
Defining harms suffered from violations of intellectual privacy in First Amendment terms could also open the door to lawsuits against federal surveillance programs that struggle for standing when framed as a Fourth Amendment challenge, since First Amendment doctrine permits "facial challenges to all types of things," Richards said.
This article shows author’s point of freedom of speech as a lawyer. Just because DNT could impact the advertising industry in the short-term, however, doesn’t warrant its intense broadcasting of fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD), and at times, outright deception. Frankels’s piece was one in a string of ad exec attacks on privacy that claim that the Internet will be doomed if consumers get more of the privacy they want.
This PDF shows some drastic detail of this point. Much of Internet-related scholarship over the past ten years has focused on the enormous benefits that come from eliminating intermediaries and allowing user generated one-to-many (one person to many people) communications. Many commentators have noted the tension created between the positive benefits for free speech and the negative effects on user privacy.

For this reason, a well-planned and properly functioning organization is an important factor in any system of internal control. An effective plan of organization should provide for segregation of functions and responsibilities so that no one person has incompatible duties which would permit the perpetration and concealment of material errors or irregularities.
This article gives the examples and details of all types of internet crime.Crimes in which the computer is the target include such offenses as theft of intellectual property, theft of marketing information
Employment, Education and Entertainment
I like this video. This video introduces how teachers use technology to work for students now which I think is ralated to the topic
I search this on the internet" Although the regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 were phased in by 1992, monitoring and enforcement continue to be problematic. This study of three large shopping centers in the Southwest included one mall that was opened in the mid-1990s, and two malls that were constructed prior to the law (but have undergone recent renovations)."
Midterm - Millennium Development Goals
This video shows the important of achieving universal primary education.

This video shows the importance of fighting HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.
As it told us, this progress has not yet been enough, however, to reverse the trajectory of the epidemic, because interventions for prevention and treatment often fall short in coverage: for every two people starting antiretroviral treatment, there are five new HIV infections. Prevention has not received sufficient priority.
This website shows us the different of MDG and especially of the education. They gives some details of it.
