These are the comments that I just left over at WPN Videos : You should check it out. Quite interesting and bravo for the dean of the school

I just got my very first Twitter account this week and there is no way I will ever be getting a FaceBook account. Getting an account there just sounds way to scary. I am 46 and build websites and I actually download my email and not look at them though a browser. By most eKids I am sure they would view me as a dino as far as the net goes, even though I have been involved with it in some way since 1996 and even before that I ran a BBS, which most of the eKids would not even know what was. Ahh the days of 48 baud and the sound that the modem made and the glee of watching a 50k image show up on your screen literally pixel by pixel to see what it was.

If they had that to deal with I am sure they would change their views quickly about what is and is not important on the online world. For thousands of years we lived without it and didn’t even get online social stuff until about 25 years ago. I wont even let my son have a phone with texting ability. I want him to be a kid, not a Net zombie
