Project #75555 - Position Paper

We are surrounded by technology. Some technology we cannot do without (pacemakers, electronic thermometers and smoke detectors) while some is abused and developed specifically for nefarious reasons (Trojans, viruses etc.). For better or for worse, technology is here to stay. For this assignment you are to pick a technology topic that has been in the news in the past 6 months and take a position on said topic. State whether you are for or against the topic and support why you chose the side you did. Be careful though, just because this is a position paper you still have to be factually accurate with your statements and support them! A good example of a less than factual statement would be “When Al Gore invented the Internet…” so make SURE you know what you are talking about and educate yourself BEFORE you make such claims!

 

Some examples of acceptable topics are:

 

NSA spying

Edward Snowden

Anonymous

Cryptocurrencies

TOR

Silk Road

Electronic voting

Cyber warfare

Behavioral Tracking (cookies, GPS, etc)

 While these are presented as examples please use them only as a fallback if you cannot come up with a topic of your own. I would MUCH rather see you choose a topic that is one that you are truly interested in! If you are unsure if a topic is acceptable please email me to ask before you start on it. Some topics are just not appropriate or lack the depth necessary for an assignment like this.

 Deliverable:

You will deliver for this assignment a cover page, 5 pages of position paper and a reference page with no less than 5 MLA formatted citations.
