+ - University bans Facebook, Twitter for a week->

Submitted by Winchestershire
Winchestershire (1495475) writes "Pennsylvania's Harrisburg University of Science and Technology will enact a week-long social media blackout for all students in residence.
The students will be forbidden from using Twitter,Facebook, instant messaging and any other online communication except for e-mail. University Provost Eric Darr chose to enact the temporary ban because he wants students to think about how much they're using technology in their daily lives and what kind of impact it has."

+ - Facebook Lawyer `Unsure' if Zuckerberg signed->

Submitted by Winchestershire
Winchestershire (1495475) writes "A lawyer for Facebook Inc. said she was “unsure” whether founder Mark Zuckerberg signed a contract that purportedly entitles a New York man to 84 percent of the world’s biggest social-networking service. Attached to Ceglia’s complaint was a copy of the two-page “work for hire” contract that he claims entitles him to control of the world’s biggest social networking service. Today in court, Ceglia’s attorney produced a purported copy of the contract."
