    CS 341 - JYS: The Digital World

    This seminar looks at the practicalities, opportunities, and risks of living in the digital world.  The seminar will explore how the digital world works, how the digital world is becoming an increasingly important part of our professional and personal lives, the ways in which the digital world increases our abilities to transform the world, and the risks to those who are marginalized.  Specific issues that are addressed include: digital identity and digital anonymity; the digital divide (those who have good access versus those who have poor, spotty, or no access to the digital world); the danger of tracking in the digital world for the oppressed; and the opportunities to know, work with, and help the other.
