  • What is the Ethics Revision Task Force up to?

    Feb 22, 2012
    A few months have passed since the first Ethics Revision Task Force (ERTF) blog, so we felt it was time to provide an update. We appreciated all of the feedback from members and divisions regarding the revision and what, as a profession, needed to be addressed. Before going into those suggestions, here is some insight into the process thus far. Perry Francis, as the leader of the ERTF, has divided the members into eight different subgroups, one per section of the existing code. Each member of the ERTF serves on three sub-groups. Perry, David Kaplan, Erin Martz, and Michelle Wade have interactions with all of the sub-groups: Perry due to his leadership, David and Erin because of their interaction with ethics on a daily basis, and Michelle due to her technology interest. In other words, we are making sure that the profession’s voice is being heard through the input brought forth to the sub-groups.

I’m not going to get into my own beliefs about the trial or the verdict, but I do want to talk about the use of social media in expressing emotions and thoughts.

  • To Text Or Not To Text

    Jun 27, 2011
    That blinking LED light on the left top edge of my phone is my nemesis. You see, that blinking light is my alert that I have new information to look at, whether it is email or text or a missed call/voicemail. Somehow I can delay emails and phone calls, but text messages get as immediate response as possible. I have to consciously tell myself NOT to respond sometimes….mainly with my clients.
