Knowledge, Learning, Community
Leigh Blackall writes about and links to this post by blogger Meg Spohn, who was fired from her teaching position at DeVry over content in her blog (true to form, this happened with no warning and with no indication of what it was about her blog that offended them so). Reflecting on her decision to go public with the story, Spohn observes, "I was in the middle of an amazing community, and I didn't even know it." It seems to me that in a country that values its freedoms, incidents such as this should be viewed with some concern.
