Somewhat of a tangent, but I can't help thinking about it – since workplace surveillance has now also been normalized in the US, four years of college might be the only place where young American adults will have the ability to be exposed to a place where they can say or do anything on the Internet without Big Brother looking over their shoulder.

I'm assuming that most progressive college campuses don't use these ridiculously invasive tools (the college I went to ran a fairly unrestricted internal and guest network), but perhaps that's being too optimistic.
