MySpace & a Drunken Pirate's Fate: A Cautionary Tale or Hint of Things to Come?

Christopher D. Sessums, Weblog, Apr 30, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

There's obviously more to this than what we see on the surface, but what we see on the surface is pretty disturbing: "A MySpace photo of a teacher education candidate, Ms. Snyder, wearing a pirate hat while drinking from a plastic 'Mr. Goodbar' cup was reason enough for Millersville University (aka My'Ville) to deny her both an education degree and teaching certificate." She is accused of "promoting underage drinking." Which is ridiculous, of course, but she has obviously failed some sort of political purity test. Which is why this is disturbing.
