Keep Out

I suppose I sort of understand the exclusionary logic behind the phenomenon described by the New York Times in "Interns? No Bloggers Need Apply." If an employee is producing revelatory diaristic discourse about the work environment, it could inhibit effective collaboration with one's colleagues. But, in terms of Internet culture, the blocking of .edu addresses by military security officials, which was described in a recent "Wired Campus" feature of the Chronicle for Higher Education seems totally illogical, especially given how Manuel Castells and others have described the traditional synergy between the academy and the military.
