Has Maine’s 15-Year School Technology Initiative Enhanced Learning? | Maine Public
Head into any 7th- or 8th-grade classroom in Maine, and you’ll see something you won’t see in any other state: every student holding a laptop.

Before You Hit 'Submit,' This Company Has Already Logged Your Personal Data | Gizmodo
Businesses seem to be doing all they can to strip away consumers’ ability to anonymously browse the Web, sacrificing privacy at the altar of commerce. And it’s illustrative of the way your sense of control online can be an illusion, the “submit” feature becoming just another placebo button.

Schools are paying a lot more attention to what students post online, and that can have severe consequences for students and schools. But monitoring online behavior is difficult, and civil rights groups are watching. Says the ACLU's Chad Marlow, "Once you start policing and punishing thoughts, you are into very, very dangerous territory."

How to install Linux on a Chromebook (and why you should) | Ars Technica
Google tightly controls the hardware and software, and "does a great job of integrating security features (verified boot, immutable OS images, encrypted filesystems, etc) in default configuration." However, "if you include ‘privacy’ in the topic of security, then Chrome OS/Google presents a unique set of challenges." So there’s the choice in black and white: privacy, or security, but not both.
