Tech Note: Want a Blackberry?

Peter Schilling's second annual IT Index of technology uses at Amherst College discloses that 81 employees have Amherst-provided Blackberries. That's not so unusual these days, of course. The rest of the list details student email use, twitter followers, the increasing number of MACs on campus, and so forth. Trends, at least short term ones, can be spotted through comparison with last year's Index. (At the bottom of Schilling's list is a link to the 2008 Index.)
