SJSU to block Skype

Steve Sloan set out the word yesterday that San Jose State is going to be blocking access to Skype from the school network. Perhaps I should not be surprised, but I was anyway. Skype is a great tool that can only help improve our educational experience, and yet the school is unwilling to support it. Hopefully the people in charge get the message that we need these tools if we are ever going to be prepared to face our competition for jobs in the future, jobs that will require a high level of proficiency in technical tools like Skype, blogs, and other Internet services.
