New Public Computer Use Policy
Worried? The new restrictions placed on non students’ access to the internet reminds me of the omni present “eyes” of Big Brother. Non users would be required to “register” with picture ID and valid address to get on the internet. Many libraries do not have such a restrictive rule. What are you going to do with the data you collect about surfing habits and don’t you think this will breach privacy and raise concerns about diminishing our creative and personal freedoms? Just the notion that where I surf can be tracked places a severe limitations on my creativity and freedom. The one hour restrictions will severly impact members of the community that cannot afford but would like to be involved with the digital age. What research can one do in one hour? HSU is not being a good community member and neighbor. As a student, I sometimes would like to surf the net or do research without using my student login number. It gives me a better sense of security when I know nobody is watching what I am reading. Hope you will reconsider your new restrictive rules. Hope this complaint will show up on the blog with your answer!
