How I Chose Privacy and Freedom for my Personal Education and Why

The article below was written after I took Harvard's online copyright course (http://copyx.org/). I passed the final test and participated in the Bulletin Board and mailing lists, but ultimately failed the course because the class requires all students to install and run freedom-denying, privacy-disrespecting Adobe Connect in order to pass the course, and I refused to do this. Originally, I was asked to write this article for another blog, but it was never published in that blog. It is published here on LibreBoston for the first time.
