Is Corp Citizenship a Dying Concept?

The news website, Truthdig.com, recently ran a piece by William Pfaff that makes the assumption that American corporations no longer have any citizen-like obligations to the American nation. It circulated within TechSoup and also among some of our corporate donor partners. We got some pretty strong reactions on whether corporate citizenship is a dying concept.

The article called “Corporate Citizenship a Dying Concept” talks about the results of a recent single question survey of American multinational corporations conducted by the nonprofit, Remapping Debate. Their question was pretty simple “whether American multinational corporations have national obligations, and if so, what those obligations are.”

Remapping Debate contacted the representatives of more than 80 corporations. Most had no comment. Among the 15 corporate representatives who did comment, most were unwilling to say that their corporation had any obligations to the United States, let alone to define any such obligations with specificity. Representatives of some American multinationals said that their companies do not even identify themselves as being American in any sense except that they are legally incorporated and physically headquartered in one of the states of the U.S.

William Pfaff in his meditation on these findings offers plausible reasons for the death of corporate citizenship like globalization of business and production, opportunities for tax minimization as Apple famously took advantage of recently, and the shift of corporate control from owners to opportunistic professional management.
What Our Donor Partners Say

At TechSoup when we asked some of our donor partners about the state of corporate citizenship we got a very different picture.

Day 53: Distracted.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

My second iPhone photo of the project. I don't think that's too bad considering this is day 53! I actually took photos with my DSLR but this photo captures my day the best so it wins.

Distractions from work spilled over into my kitchen tonight. This tortilla was on fire when I removed it from the oven. After a day full of on the edge of my seat anticipation about pending layoffs, I wanted to make myself a meal that would satisfy. I prefer to crisp my tortillas under the broiler before adding the filler ingredients. Thankfully I had another tortilla and the second time around left the oven door open a crack to keep a closer eye on the situation.

I was saddened today to learn of specific people with whom I will no longer be collaborating with seeing in the hallway. My department does not know anything official yet but this will all be over by Thursday. My supervisor, Amy and our director, Jen have been extremely supportive through all of this and for that I will always be grateful. My thoughts are with those who have been personally impacted by the layoffs and the people who had to deliver the unfortunate news.

Don't make sites just for the iPhone
iPhone News

An important message, Tim explains that we shouldn't develop sites purely for the iPhone, but focus on the "mobile" platform as a whole.

This also extends to the use of URLs used to link to mobile versions of websites. It'd be better to use mobile.lakemac.com.au over iphone.lakemac.com.au - it's a hell of a lot more future proof too!
