Re: <nettime> Organizing graduate students across the Net (fwd)

While you are at it, take a look at the Code of Conduct that your
University/institution has for the use of Web resources and in particular
for the material hosted in academic servers and you will hopefully
understand that unfortunately the institutions powers are extented to
cyberspace. Not to mention that students that are not pyaing fees or have
any problems with administration often find that their access is blocked
and that files have been destroyed. I do not want to name institutions
here but i have been present during such practices and they have really
shocked me. So maybe a first move towards using the Internet politically
would be to organise readings of Codes of Conducts in our spare time and
write up a critique of them.
