We’re hearing rumblings from the Wellesley High student body about new firewall/content filtering technology installed at the school upon their return from vacation.
Students found that they couldn’t access popular Web sites like Facebook, YouTube and SparkNotes that they could previously. (“Blocks a ton of sites,” according to a web posting by one student.). Techier students have already concocted workarounds.
One source says it’s unclear whether the change is temporary or permanent, though suspects it’s a work in progress.
