I'm really excited to have had this story published on Imitation Fruit, the e-zine, this month. Thanks, by the way, to Diana Blackwell for the chair artwork accompanying the story. As with most of the latest wave of e-zines, IF is innovative, whimsical, provocative, and just plain good. But that's...

The Death Of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories, by Leo Tolstoy I’ve previously posted on one long piece in this book: Hadji Murat. The remainder of this book is a collection of short stories selected by the book’s translators, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, no doubt to show off the diversity...

Okay, okay -- the new thing is to blame corporations for their unabashed pursuit of wealth. Wealth is for what we strive, rather, for what Americans should stive. Business is a rotten operation. As profound and positive a venture buying, selling, and funding may be, control and money are the...

In researching something to post on the iPhone 4, I came across this. John P is a sort of digital Daily Report and has incurred the wrath of Steve Jobs, for one. Interesting that he'd post an Ethics Statement - doubly interesting the link to the Dow Jones Code of Conduct. I'm wondering how many...

It’s scary getting old. This came home to me the other day when I was out shopping for some fruits and vegetables with my mother-in-law, Betty Kamen. Betty doesn’t move too fast these days, and as we set off to cross Taraval Street in San Francisco I could see some cars in the distance. I didn’t...

       Another post on ethics:  prosecuting Congress members for ethical violations is a last ditch stab at improving their ethical behavior. Punishment should always be a course of last resort. To be effective, ethics must be taught to children - reinforced at home, school, and on the street...

Since the World Cup is going full blast and I'm posting about ethics, it might just be appropriate to look at how ethics plays out for this group of soccer youth. It's specific and doesn't begin to cover all ethical dilemmas, but it might generate some thought on a grander scale.   Several years...

I'm always looking for blogs comparable to mine. This is one, but the differences are intriguing. Some of the posts here have - once again - to do with the dearth of formalized ethics regarding publishing, particularly when new media are involved.Would you pay twice for the same book? It's funny to...

For better or worse, bloggers now analyze news events, if not create the original reporting. This may give us a glance at the near future and its possible media wars. The article below exemplifies the sort of thing that laws respond to in knee jerk fashion - something codes of ethics for, in this...

More and more physicists are coming to the conclusion that the Universe is made of information. As a writer, that's good news, as an individual it's even better. Freedom - it's a word that immediately brings to mind inspiring speeches, lofty ideals, fighting for a noble cause. But it doesn't exist...
