I'm with you Rapaire! In the library science grad courses, we are taught to think very hard about where we stand on freedom of speech, censorship, and privacy.
I just finished a class where I took a survey of all of the major libraries around my area and they came out saving data about where you are... fines and little things saved for the minimum of day-to-day operations but other than that... oops! Mr. FBI man, oh, so sorry, we didn't save any information like that... so sorry... :)
Grad school has been eye-opening in more ways than one, however, I value to free speech and privacy a whole lot more than I ever thought possible. A gift of appreciation.
Thanks for posting this blog article!
