Troubling Discovery

We tackled the ugly problem of child pornography on workplace computers in the spring of 2003, shortly after two PC technicians at New York Law School who had discovered thumbnail images of naked children on a professor's laptop were fired after turning him in. What happened? One of the technicians, Dorothea Perry, may have angered her employer, Collegis, a service provider to NYLS, or the school by going to the FBI when she wasn't satisfied with the pace of the investigation. Despite good employment records, Perry and colleague Robert Gross were put on probation for minor workplace offenses such as tardiness, then fired. Perry and Gross sued Collegis and NYLS, alleging retaliation against them. Gross settled, but Perry entered a protracted legal battle that didn't go in her favor. Even so, their actions led to the arrest of law professor Edward Samuels, a guilty plea and jail time. The episode served as a warning to IT pros: If you encounter child porn, take action, but proceed with extreme caution.

Ouch -- I hadn't seen that, and you're right about the finality of sending something to the printer. But trust me, an error in digital hurts, too.

The print article dropped the last two words of the 7/9/2012 GM cover description. Another reason print is dieing. Not that the typos aren't worse, but you can't fix'm after they print'm
