Does economic circumstance and/or culture play any role in access to information?
How is information disseminated? What happens when important information must be shared, but access to that information is limited?
In this Discussion, you examine circumstances surrounding a catastrophe in which you must communicate important information to many people as quickly as possible.
To Prepare for this Discussion:
- Consider the following scenario:
You are responsible for communicating information to a large population following a catastrophe. There has been a solar flare and some power grids have failed. How do you get information to as many people as possible, knowing that some people will have access to the Internet and some will not?
- Consider the socioeconomic and cross-cultural differences in the population for greater access to information.
