Yes, indeed!  Maya Angelou was a wise woman. 

I really liked how Provost Etchemendy made the entirety of digital communication culture responsible for sending stop messages.  It's like racist or sexist jokes at cocktail parties:  they'll never stop until someone has the courage to speak up.  I though his response was spot on.

See you for summer reading blog work!

Stanford University Provost John Etchemendy responds to leaked emails from Stanford alum Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel's student days ... what a perfect response! 

Worth reading--especially if you teach about "digital tattoos" and digital citizenship:
