The Disconnect: Accountability and Consequences Online

Wednesday, May. 1, 2013

Do we need more editorial control on the Web? In this brief clip, the Chairman, President, and CEO of Seagate Technology, Stephen Luczo, argues that we do.  He also cautions that digital media channels sometimes unwittingly lend a gloss of credibility to stories that don't deserve it.  Luczo sees this as a symptom of a broader breakdown between responsibility, accountability, and consequences in the online world.

Luczo's remarks are part of the video series "Internet Ethics: Views from Silicon Valley."  Responding to them is Chad Raphael, Chair of the Communications Department and Associate Professor at Santa Clara University.
