[Air-L] Let Watson be dealt with elsewhere

Certainly ethics in the context of Internet studies is a broad far  
reaching topic. But for one math teacher of mine when I brought up  
ethical studies and ethical uses of statistics she started to talk  
about a professor who was a racist in public and not apologizing.  
Maybe for those of us techi's this narrow ethics topic is our first  
impression use of the term ethics in university?

Certainly a hot topic for some but probably not valid here except in  
studying something like Internet hate and I am reading Castells on US  
Militias at the moment.

peace love and eternal grooviness
