EduTech spyware makes me glad I’m done with school

Techdirt has broad coverage, while comrade Soatok dug into the actual security behind the tech.

I graduated from a 2 year college in the ruins of the pre-2008 economy. My biggest concern with online classes back then was figuring out how to make the Java applet for Blackboard run when it wouldn’t run in any browser, except Opera.

“Software as a service” like Amazon Web Services and Google’s growing business suite scooped up all the entry level IT jobs, and nobody told me college was for networking, not learning. Knowing what I know now about college, I’m not sure I would go back to capture the real value with the growing panopticon of intrusive compliance software.
