Journal cbelt3's Journal: Ubiquitous Computing = Ubiquitous Expense

The CNN report on the Campus computing experience of West Virginia Wesleyan caused me to think back to Clifford Stoll's book Silicon Snake Oil . While the huge investment that WVW made is beginning to pay off in terms of buzz and nicely formatted papers , I wonder what it did to the structure of the college. I've seen other 'computerize it now !' initiatives that sucked funding from the basics in other schools, and I wondered- in a non-technical institution, is bleeding edge technology a learning enabler, or a self-perpetuating expensive tool with no intrinsic value ?
