Interesting to see that in light of concerns, Yale has delayed their switch to Gmail to allow additional conversation. The article from the Yale Daily News brings up some interesting points I hadn’t thought of about outsourcing academic email to Google, including the fact that much student data might then be stored in servers overseas, and apparently Google will not disclose specifically which countries students’ email might end up stored in (and thus, which country’s laws may govern access to students’ email).
