Well, no, it's not OK to host Canadian student data on an American server. Privacy laws are quite different between the two countries, and Canada admits students that the Americans may have an interest in spying upon. That said, it should not be necessary to host blogs and wikis on individual university servers. I have long been lobbying for a national system that can be used instead. There's still no traction or money for such a system, but I announced in a recent internal meeting that I would be going ahead with a plan anyways. Niot that I hve time for more projects, but really, the time has come.
