Today is a reminder that student activism and concern from teachers can yield amazing results.
It looks like Skype is going to be allowed on the SJSU campus. Steve Sloan just broke the story an hour ago (it hasn't gotten on technorati yet) in a post on his website.
While Steve doesn't give any details about the deal apparently made between the University and Ebay (they were having a meeting today to discuss the future of Skype at SJSU), he writes:
The very short version, they are NOT going to be pulling the plug on Skype at San Jose State University. Stay tuned for more!
It's a good day for students and educators alike. Go Steve.
