only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men”. Taking the pains of keeping data secure should be a comfortable trade-off for privacy. As mentioned in the article, “The objective of VID is to create infrastructures that produce less friction over values than those created in the past” (Knobel & Bowker, 2011). With Digital Rights Management (DRM), organizations can coordinate the effective use of digital media, a medium that has been amended as the value in design of information security evolves. In my personal opinion, information systems and technologies are changing so rapidly that the value of design with the terms and conditions, community standards and even policies and procedures of these systems, have to change constantly to keep up with the evolution of the data we share online. The article also speaks on cultural valence when it mentions using Google to search for an African country, namely Cameroon. The search engine prioritizes Wikipedia and the CIA World Factbook instead of actual information from Cameroon and Cameroonians alike. The question is, what kind of information do we, as the end- users, value? Would an oblivious Google user prefer the information and facts displayed by Wikipedia or the actual information that originates and is shared from Cameroon? Applying and adapting to the value of information seems like it would ultimately depend on the information that the user needs. Unfortunately, in this information age, users may be automatically tuned to the data that is right in front of them (like the third or fourth link on a Google search) rather than digging through the vast amount of information on the clear, deep and even dark web of the Internet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
