Iowa State’s wrestling with a student group that advocated the use of an anonymizing technology, Tor, is a model in how higher education can address the complex questions of technology, law and policy. Everyone involved in the event deserves a gold star: the students who formed the association, the administration that was willing to change its mind and the CIO and staff who provided solid information and facilitated the education. Athena – i.e. law, philosophy and justice – in the Internet Age does not materialize out of the head of Zeus, unless we deconstruct this myth to appreciate that balance and understanding of the issues will take effort, data, flexibility, patience, communication and good will (remember Athena won the competition with Poseidon to be the patron of Athens with an olive branch, not a sword). In short, Iowa State did exactly as the MIT Report suggested: educating the entire community on issues of technology, law and policy related to the Internet.
