There are moments when alumni should feel proud of the dear alma mater, and then there are moments when we must shake our heads and sigh. This wired article describes how UMD students cheated using text messaging. *sigh*

A post about this article at Kairosnews , however, makes a good point: the students were caught in a "sting" operation, a tactic which might be seen as slightly less than ethical by some - including me. If I were a paying member of the amumni association, I'd call and complain.

It's also interesting to note that the article points out that students might have an advantage over their older, and less tech-savvy, profs. Really? Gee, there's something new! Come on, Wired, this conversation's been and gone so many times already!
