IIT Internet 22.5/7


The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mumbai (Bombay) will turn off hostel students’ free internet access from 11pm until 12.30pm. Authorities hope the decision will get students talking to each other again. Mumbai has 13 undergraduate hostels.

The really interesting part of this for me is that they’ve decided that 11PM – 12:30PM is when they need to encourage social interaction. If you were going to pick an arbitrary time for this kind of thing, I would think you would choose mealtimes, or between 2AM – 6AM, or something along those lines.
