PERUGIA, ITALY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- The Online News Association, the world largest organization of digital journalists, today opened up crowdsourcing for its "do-it-yourself" ethics code project, aimed at helping news organizations, startups and individual bloggers and journalists create their own ethics codes.
The team developing the Build Your Own Ethics Code project completed its first draft, covering more than 40 complex ethical issues that may arise in practicing digital journalism. The project is now seeking comments from working journalists to add depth and to cover any missing topics.
The first draft will be publicly presented at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy, by Tom Kent, Standards Editor, the Associated Press, who is leading the project for ONA. Crowdsourcing will run for several months, and ONA expect updates to continue for years to keep up with the ever-evolving field.
"We hope that once journalists have worked through our site," said Jane McDonnell, ONA Executive Director, "they will have a comprehensive, personalized understanding of how they see journalism ethics -- guidelines that can be publicly posted and lived by."
Journalists can participate by visiting http://bit.ly/onacrowdsourcing and leaving comments of 50 words or less. For broader comments or questions, email onaethics at gmail.com.
The Online News Association is the world's largest association of digital journalists. ONA's mission is to inspire innovation and excellence among journalists to better serve the public. The membership includes news writers, producers, designers, editors, bloggers, developers, photographers, educators, students and others who produce news for and support digital delivery systems.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
