Parents vote to shut off Wi-Fi at Ont. school

Peter Nowak, CBC, Oct 18, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"The parents believe Wi-Fi at the school, which has about 350 students, is causing a number of symptoms among students, including headaches and an inability to concentrate, all of which disappear on weekends."

Let me animate this story by way of a parable. This is a true story. Years ago my brother was having great difficulty in school. nobody knew what it was. He was having headaches, couldn't concentrate, was irritable. We thought it was maybe the fluorescent lighting, or the ventilation. We would, maybe, have suspected the WiFi, if there were any back then. He solved it himself, eventually. He started smoking. That way, he was getting nicotine all day, instead of just evenings and weekends at home. Just saying.
