Hi, I'm David. I'm the Director of Parking and Sustainable Mobility Services. I've been at SFU for, oh about 12 years now. I have a background in commerce and human resource management, but you can look up my LinkedIn profile to find out more about that.
You bolster yourself in the morning, thinking, maybe today my boss won't criticize me during the staff meeting, they won't tell me that a high school student can do my job better than me. They won't yell at me over a typo in the newsletter. You arrive in the office not knowing who to trust, as your colleagues may say something to your boss. You work hours of overtime, knowing that you won't get paid. Then you go home to get yourself ready to do it all again tomorrow. Bullying and harassment at work is a real thing.

When Justine Sacco tweeted before a long-haul flight to South Africa in 2003, she didn't think anything of it. Her twitter following was approximately 170 people, most who knew her personally. Her misguided tweet blew up over Twitter, cost her her job and marked her as a racist. This story is a profound cautionary tale about using Social Media. In this new landscape where people post personal thoughts publicly, where everyone records every minutia of life makes you wonder if there is any privacy left at all.
