Ethical Considerations & Information Proliferation

David Warlick has a thoughtful and informative post about "Ethics Challenges and Information." How do we, as educators, deal with the challenges of digital content explosion? His post is a response to the question,
“What is your greatest challenge in teaching appropriate, ethical use of web-based media to your students?”
He believes that we are challenged in three separate ways:

Information Reliability
Information Ownership
Information Infrastructure

and he describes the issues inherent in each category. It is an excellent post which concisely sets out a new ethical mandate.
