Now this is brilliant strategy by the alumnae and students of Peace College. Withhold your monetary donations so that a college that is already struggling can just go under even further. That'll show 'em.

I know that people are fascinated with the "cloud" and the idea that someday soon, we won't have to lug our data around with us on our physical hard drives, instead opting to pull it out of the sky from some magical unseen server. But it seems that we are a very long way from that becoming the norm, rather than the exception. Affordable, high speed internet access is far from ubiquitous, and even in places that offer free Wi-Fi access, data speeds vary wildly (if you can even connect at all). I swear by services such as Dropbox and Evernote (and in all likelihood, the upcoming iCloud), but in no way am I ready to rely on them for critical data that I need at a moment's notice.
