Ethical tweetingJuly 27, 2012
@smfullerton on the video’s strength: a realistic depiction of the many chances we have to speak up or stay silent, and the consequences.
OK, this “Reverend Lee said that my daughter is a hero” part IS a bit hoaky.
The villain of “The Lab,” who falsified data, is a postdoc named Greg Anderson. Same name as Barry Bonds’ sketchy trainer!
“… The little punks have always counted because, in the long run, the character of a country is the sum total of its little punks.”
Kim’s cousin, quoting Gary Cooper: “I know a lot of you are saying, ‘What can I do, I’m just a little punk. I don’t count.’ …”
Quote from grad student’s mom: “Why didn’t you go into law like your brother? He never has [ethical] problems like this!”
Video interlude: postdoc creates Johnny Cash / Wu Tang Clan mashup. Hilarious!
(I am texting my poll responses via http://PollEv.com , not via my phone.)
1st vote: Should Kim just sign the proofs, or tell Greg she needs to read them? “No, slapping him is not an option.”
American Idol-style polling on the seminar will begin soon!
When the Office of Research Integrity first came out w/ the video “The Lab,” @smfullerton thought, “Oh, how hoaky.” She likes it better now!
Research misconduct: “The big ‘duh’ of the BRI series,” says @smfullerton … Don’t lie, cheat, or steal! Yet not always black & white.
