    Dan Goodin, a reporter with technology news website Ars Technica, here. I saw the web post at:


    Can you tell me what the current status of Google Docs is on your network? Is it still being blocked? If so, how are students and faculty responding?

    I’m on a very tight deadline, so please respond ASAP.

    Kind regards,

    Dan Goodin

      Google Docs was only blocked for about 2.5 hours last week; access was restored as soon as we considered it appropriate.
