Are you kidding me?

Ok,I just saw this in ComputerWorld (http://www.computerworld.com/blogs/node/4598).  This can not be for real.  BAN Wikipedia from schools?  Are you kidding me?  Social media is GROWING folks, it’s not going away.  Banning MySpace?  Sure, I can see that.  But, get with the program folks, sites like Wiki and all the others are here to stay.  I value traditional education and the tools we all used growing up – Dewey Decimal, what? Microfiche and periodical indexes and Brittanica.  But, if we want the future generations to be armed with all of the infomation they need to be functioning members of society, we MUST accept these news tools.
