Admins Just Don’t Understand

via Digg

“I’m now a criminal for making proxies. For making a website. A legal website. On my private server. Outside of school. Great.” – Robert Afnani

This one’s hot off teh interwebs, doing blockbuster page hits over at Digg. High School Student Robert Afnani got slapped with a suspension threat and was accused of criminal activities by his terminally unhip school admins.

He blogs about it here.

The Flow notes that this has echoes of the kinds of legal battles fought in the “Wild West” days of the net, when government officials tried to hold internet providers accountable for what people did on their networks. Only writ small. Odds are we’ll see more of this kind of nonsense as the generation gap widens by way of technology.
