Ranking Universities on how they honor cyber-liberties

Ranking Universities on how they honor cyber-liberties.  Wired Magazine's latest edition (page 36 of the hard copy, which won't be online til 5/20) ranks the “nation's top 50 research universities” and grades the best 5 and worst 5 when it comes to cyber-liberties.  Of local interst, Tulane was ranked 2nd worst with the comment that the university “regards logging onto the network as a student's consent to look at any file, including E-mail.”  I wonder if that's true. 

Oh, the worst university was apparently Columbia.  The best 5 universities were: MIT, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Univ of Michigan, and Carnegie Mellon.  Congratulations to them.  [Ernie the Attorney]
