By May Ball State's internet options will be bsusecure and bsuguest. This push for bsusecure seems pointless, I've had very few problems with bsu internet. The reasons for this change can be found on the BSU web page. A few of the top reasons are:
- Safe and secure wireless experience due to automatic encryption
- Less frequent interruptions to enter a username and password - After the initial setup, you will not have to reenter your username and password each time you want to access bsusecure.
- Faster download speeds
But I have to ask myself, what is with the change? Was Ball State's connection having problems? Were there too many users? Were our "wireless experiences" really that unsafe? All of these questions made me realize the internet isn't as sound as we think or want it to be. Whether we realize it or not, the internet, and technology in general, is flawed. It could be that the flaws are so small we don't care or could it be that we depend so much on this form of technology that we are incapable of seeing anything but the good?
