"Teaching and learning in information ethics includes examination of numerous timely topics, including knowledge economy, indigenous knowledge, cybernetic pluralism, post 9-11 surveillance, cognitive capitalism, imposed technologies, public access to government information, information rights, global tightening of information and border controls, and accelerated extinction of languages."
- Toni Samek
