Twenty-First Century Students

I just got an email from a student in my calculus class. He's looking for his TA's email address. He knows the TA's name. Knows that the TA is employed by the university -- in the math department no less. Can't find the email address.

I checked, not only is the TA's email address in the university directory and on the math department web page, but if you put the TA's name into google together with math and the name of the university, he comes up in the first five hits.
