New Presentation: "Libraries and Broadband: Becoming Radical Change Agents in Our Communities"

Slides from a recent presentation by Professor R. David Lankes, Director of the Information Institute, Syracuse University's School of Information Studies, and director of the library science program for the school.

From the Abstract:

And so we come to the point. Why bring broadband libraries. We donít do it as a means to bring facebook to the masses. We wire our buildings not as points of distraction or simply another service the library offers. Broadband is not a way to bring the world to the citizens of Vermont, but to unleash the passions and potentials of the citizens of Vermont on the rest of the world. Just as the roads of previous generations bound together empires and democracies We can use broadband to bring together the farmer and the lawyer, the entrepreneur and the student, the politician and the protestor in a grand conversation on the future of the state.

Note: Professor Lankes adds, "Due to conference setup I was not able to capture the audio and screencast. However, the session was video taped, so I hope to add these later."

    Tuesday, 19th August 2014

    Organisations face growing legal and reputational risks associated with doing business. These risks have become even more significant because of mounting pressure from regulators and an increase in business carried out in higher risk jurisdictions. Increasingly complex business regulations such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act ensure that companies thoroughly examine third-party relationships to tackle the risk of money laundering, bribery and corruption and sanctions regimes. Mark Dunn looks at what the law says regarding Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Bribery & Corruption, and how organisations can mitigate the risk of becoming involved in corruption through third parties (e.g. agents, suppliers) by implementing a simplified or Enhanced Due Diligence process.
