We interrupt your programming to bring you the following community
service announcement...

"Whistleblowing" is when somebody from INSIDE an organization - a person
fully appraised of the entire picture - comes out and says "the truth is
THIS" and then proceeds to lay bare the questionable behaviours which
occur inside an organization.

"Hacking" is when somebody from OUTSIDE an organization - a person not
fully appraised of the entire picture - goes in and makes public
information which is necessarily divorced from the organizational context.

The "activity" in question can be described using one of these terms,
but not both - which might assist in clarifying where the ethical
boundary lies.

We apologize for this interruption, and return you to your regular

To unsubscribe, send a message to majordomo@calvin.edu with
"unsubscribe asa" (no quotes) as the body of the message.
