NYDogIt has become much more difficult to hide your personal details in the 22 years since this New Yorker cartoon appeared. Hackers, current and prospective employers, marketers, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and the government (to name a few) all harvest the Internet for personal information about you. Where do you stand on privacy vs. convenience? How aware are your students about the long-term implications of the “Internet recording everything and forgetting nothing?” Come to this lunchtime session to discuss the problematic nature of data security.

This lunchtime discussion will focus on sharing tips and lessons learned from using CommentPress, an open source plugin for WordPress that allows readers to comment paragraph-by-paragraph, line-by-line, or block-by-block in the margins of a text. Briana Lewis, of Allegheny’s Modern and Classical Languages Department, will share her experiences with using this tool to allow students to annotate and comment on the text “La Morte amoureuse”.

If so, please contact us. We’re planning our fall teaching with technology lunch schedule and are hoping to find volunteers who are willing to share their stories.
