    This is awesome. Definite thesis topic for next year!

    This is such an interesting topic, which raises a multitude of economic, political, and social issues. This is actually a research project that Taylor (Owen) and I are working on — how can virtual reality be a tool in immersive journalistic storytelling? One of the goals journalists could have through using technology is to include the audience in their own experience, having them see a 360-degree perspective of what they are seeing IN REAL TIME. It is interesting to note, however, the intersection of this with law. It would be interesting to see how law, which seemingly responds to the changes in media and technology, would “abide” by the presence and eventual use of the VR technology reality in our society. Would it possible for journalists to simply show whatever they see around them using this technology to their audiences? How would it affect existing laws about privacy and privacy torts — especially if the events occur in real time? What will happen to consent?
