Ridiculous Blocks On the School Web Filter #1

I’m glad to roll out a new series to the Pod today, the first in a series documenting websites that are blocked by the web filter employed by my school district, for no apparent or rational reason.  Here are the first three:

  1. Google Earth (you’re guess is as good as mine on this one).
  2. Ecofoot.org (in truth, I filled out the requisite unblock form to get this one opened).
  3. Youtube (inexplicably, Vimeo is not blocked—the rationale from my IT department is that many youtube videos have “inappropriate” comments and advertisements).
