    1. By me reading this my understanding of social media things have changed. People can use social media to do anything and express there selves all types of ways. It is crazy though how social media has changed the perspective of life though how you can break up and express your self on those platforms but cant do it face to face to me it had made society and my generation weaker. But in my opinion is that social media can change your preconception of people and make you think one way when its different actually in person. You will only know what you can see thought its a a lot different from being in person and face to face cause i know from experience people can do something over media that they wouldn't do face to face.

My generation was born into a tech world so all we know is technology like Iphones IPad laptops and game systems our world would be a whole lot different if these things didn't exist.

    1. The question being investigated in this essay is whether information ethics is culture-relative. In answering this question, it has to be kept in mind that the principal aims of information ethics are not descriptive, but normative and evaluative.

      What most people fail to realize is everyone has there own ways of doing things and different life styles and these ways of life or doing things are inhabited from one another so once one person in this culture do something n this way that is how they will keep going about and doing it that way

    1. Conversely, our tendency toward sugary cereals and milk or preference for egg sandwiches loaded with bacon and cheese would seem quite bizarre to other cultures.

For us Americans we look at everything through our norms and if its not within that we look as if somethings wrong with it.

This section talks about how things can be Justice or utilitarianism in life or dead situations. Justice Oliver Holmes argued that everything should be justice and equal no matter what everyone should get the same shot at life. Some examples was that was given from this excerpt was about kidney and organ donors and people on the waiting list to get them. Holmes is basically saying it should be an equal draw to get a kidney an example would be everyone putting their name in a bucket and someone randomly draws out a name everyone had an equal chance to get the kidney. On the flip side utilitarianism is saying the people that needs it the most needs to get it based off severity to get it. I personally would say I'm Utilitarianism because I believe the people that need something the most in life or death situations should get what is needed.
