Napolitano Brings Big Brother to U of California

It looks as if University of California President Janet Napolitano was looking to keep this on the down-low, but that is not going to happen now as some of the other academic elite seem to have a high regard for privacy. Hit up the Daily Bruin, we read it every day, for all the 411.

The University of California Office of the President has installed computer hardware capable of monitoring email transactions among computers across the University of California system.

In the email sent out to members of faculty, Ligon said the UCOP asked members of the committee to keep this monitoring a secret. He added he thinks as a member of a UC Academic Senate committee, continued silence on behalf of the committee will make them an accomplice in violation of policies of shared governance and academic freedom.
