If we work in virtual offices, does that mean we have virtual sit-ins? In the 1950s and 1960s, college students orchestrated sit-ins as part of the Civil Rights Movement. Today, college students offering a 21st century spin on that theme with virtual sit-ins.

According to Inside Higher Ed magazine, thousands of students and faculty recently took to the streets to protest budget cuts and tuition increases across the state’s university system. A professor at one of the California universities organized a virtual sit-in, which basically meant logging on to the Office of the President portal on the system’s web site and causing the page to reload over and over. That occupied the president’s virtual office so that others couldn’t enter in.
