College Campuses Go Wireless
Nothing really new, since we’ve covered plenty of articles about various college campuses going wireless, but here’s an AP article about the overall trend of colleges to make themselves the “most” unwired campus around. There are a few interesting points in the article. First, they quote someone saying that wireless is catching on on campuses partly because security isn’t a big concern. The argument is that, unlike a corporation, students aren’t sending such important confidential information. Tell that to the student who has his or her identity stolen. Second, the article points out that all this unwiring of campuses could lead to even faster adoption of wireless technologies once those students graduate. They’ll have become so used to being wireless, that they’ll bring that wireless technology into the world once they leave campus as well. Sounds good to me.
