For this era, digital imagery, sounds, and web communication have opened doors to sharing thoughts and ideas instantaneously to potentially vast audiences. This presents exciting opportunities, but also serious ethical, legal, and social challenges.

Think/Point/Shoot explains the challenge of communicating a story to a worldwide audience while maintaining ethical standards.
