There are some good rich legal issues in the links above, including issues in the Quon workplace communication privacy case at the Supreme Court of the United States and the 3rd Circuit student expression case (my summary of the February 4th decisions here). The Gmail outsourcing issue (at least the cross-border transfer part of it) is better described as “vexing” than “rich,” but the Alberta OIPC’s blessing of the University of Alberta’s plan to implement Gmail is significant given Google’s appealing pitch to educational institutions.
What else can I say? Back from a surf trip out east that unfortunately didn’t have a lot of great surf. Feeling invigorated though, and have had a few positive hearing days lately. Guess that means I’m due for a baddy. Better keep on my toes!
