I am having some interesting discussions with my editors in our virtual newsroom.
I think this is a big deal. But others say that if they can't justify the ROI in investing in WSTS, they are making the right business decision.
Now, that's where I start to worry.
Business people often like to say "do the right thing." But the reality is that they like to talk about their occasional "doing the right thing" moments, because it happens so rarely.
In most cases, business/financial reasons trump everything. Forget about doing anything for the greater good.
Do we need WSTS?
Do we need SIA?
Let us know what you think.
