eWEEK opinion--Iraq War Filter
The gist of the pitch was that the war will lead employees to constantly seek out news on the Internet, and that companies should be ready to control this to keep productivity up.Should businesses filter out the war with Iraq? Hmm. Is lost productivity a serious concern? Perhaps. Is filtered access to information a violation of my constitutional rights? What mandates that I have access to everything on the Internet from work? What ethical questions are raised if a person's time is spent on non-work related activities all day? Do we really need to filter to control this or how about just monitoring? Interesting questions to ask at times like these.
