Discussion points for Friday’s class

We will continue our preparations for your photo-story assignment. By the end of class I want to make sure everyone has a good, workable story. We will put them together in class on Tuesday.

That is not going to take an hour and 40 minutes. So here are a couple of other issues I would like to deal with.

First, I’ll open with a brief discussion of copyright tied to this case of a newspaper editor using a professional photographer’s image without permission. It turns out that the picture had been lifted from Facebook.

Next I want to have a longer discussion about the rise of the citizen leaker — specifically Edward Snowden, although this goes back to Chelsea Manning and WikiLeaks, too. We are going to watch a video of Snowden and read the following three articles.
