Adults and MySpace

Writing about web page http://halfanhour.blogspot.com/2006/06/adults-and-myspace.html

Excellent essay by Stephen Downes on the real versus perceived dangers of sites such as MySpace, and what might constitute a proportionate response.

After all, if a grown man came to a school playground and started swearing and drinking and making lewd remarks, we would react by removing the adult, not by preventing children from accessing the park.

Thoughtful and measured, as always.
