Should Twitter entertain millions with public arguments?
Comedian Janey Godley's tweets of a couple's train-bound row raise questions of how to protect our privacy in public places.
If the troubles of the two travellers had made it on to a newspaper first rather than a comedian's Twitter feed, would we be so relaxed about loss of privacy? I think perhaps not.
Social media has done so much for freedom of expression, it would be cruel if it actually leads to less social freedom for fear of having our every misstep, angry word or misbehaviour broadcast there for all to see.

Is honesty for suckers? If by “suckers” you mean people who care about others and the social good, then yes, it is. If by “suckers” you mean people who care about the long-term aspects of their business (see the drop in stock price of Volkswagen) then yes, it is. And if by “suckers” you mean people who care about the meaning of their brand (I own a Volkswagen Golf and I don’t think I will ever be able to look at it again in the same way) than yes again. Any business with long-terms plans needs a culture of honesty to deter cheating and help maintain the pool of social trust. The bottom line is that dishonesty can be a good strategy for someone who is trying to maximize short-term profits. So, if you plan to stay around just for a short while, maybe it can be a profitable approach. But, if you have any long-terms plans it is important for your business to create a culture of honesty that will help the employees overcome short-term incentives for dishonesty and keep them in line with the long-term best interest of the company and society.
company and society.
And there is one more thing to consider, which is that when an individual or a company acts dishonestly, they
pollute the trust pool -- they erode the social trust we have in one another -- and we are all worse for it. This is why
we are, and need to be, outraged with Volkswagen, and why their act is not just about their cars – it is a betrayal of
the social trust, and the trust fallout I suspect will have an impact on all German manufacturers and all car makers.

I recently found out that we could save 4 million kids’ lives in the next 5 years. How? With 2 new vaccines that could drastically reduce child deaths in poor countries from 2 diseases, which cause pneumonia and diarrhoea.
However, it’s one thing having these vaccines available; it’s another getting them safely to the places where they are needed. That’s where you come in. In a few weeks world leaders are meeting to decide how much they will pledge to support the roll out of these vaccines in developing countries.
You can help protect children for a lifetime by adding your name to our petition.
Nearly 1 out of 3 child deaths is caused by these two diseases. But they don’t only kill, they also make children ill. Fewer sick kids means more time in school, less strain on health services, and healthier future generations. […]
Segundo Stuart McWilliam, entre outros benefícios, a redução da diarreia e da pneumonia possibilita
