BYU eBusiness Day March 16 to focus on technology and ethics

The Rollins Center for eBusiness at Brigham Young University and the CP80 Foundation are bringing some of Utah’s business leaders to the BYU campus Friday, March 16, for the semiannual eBusiness Day.
Titled “Technology Responsibility and Ethics,” this semester’s eBusiness Day focuses on the risks and opportunities inherent in technology. The event begins at 9 a.m. and will be held in 151 N. Eldon Tanner Building. Space is limited. Registration is available online at ebusiness.byu.edu/trec.
“We live in an era of unprecedented access to and reliance upon technology,” said Stephen Liddle. director of the Rollins Center for eBusiness. “This event gives people a chance to learn about the ripple effects of e-business, risk management in using technology, and how they can become personally involved in these fields.”
Ralph Yarro, CEO and president of ThinkAtomic Inc., will be the event’s keynote speaker. Yarro is the founder of the CP80 Internet Initiative, a nonprofit organization working to separate Internet content that is harmful to children. Ron Schwendiman, manager of LDS Church Internet Operations, will speak on “The Storm of Technology in our Lives.” Liddle will address the event’s theme in a presentation called “A Framework for Understanding the New Challenges and Opportunities of the Internet Era.”
After the lectures, there will be a question-and-answer session open to participants. Technology and ethics-related organizations such as CP80 will also have booths open to the public in the atrium of the Tanner Building. At the conclusion of the event, there will be a drawing for an iPod nano in the atrium.
“This eBusiness Day is going to be an incredible opportunity to get an inside scoop on some cutting-edge technology being developed to combat some of the more troubling aspects of technology,” said Jeff Brown, program manager for the Rollins Center for eBusiness. “We’re very excited to hear from these great speakers.”

A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
