Every click you make could have real-world consequences, whether you’re shopping online or posting incriminating pictures. Terms like “internet safety” don’t mean what they used to, but a lot of us haven’t caught up yet. Is this because the internet is changing faster than we are or because we just don’t care? Do millennials take safety and privacy of their online lives for granted?
Cubicles have a bad rap: They’re tiny, humiliating work spaces reserved for monkeys who push buttons all day long. I don’t have to sit in one, so maybe I’d speak differently if I were stuck in a bathroom-sized box all day, but I do live in a one-bedroom apartment with my significant other. And if there’s one good thing about having less room to stretch out in, it’s that you’re forced to use it more wisely.

Does the “right to know” trump privacy rights? Should journalists exercise restraint in coverage of sensitive topics? At what point does a slavish devotion to the 1st Amendment absolve the press of any moral responsibility? These are very old questions, but they’ve become particularly relevant in the age of 24/7 citizen journalism....
