watch your kids
Slashdot's stricken up a hot topic about parental control over Internet access. I think most folks know by now that I'm in the same camp as most of the Slashdot crowd: be honest, accept reality, and give kids the opportunity to accept reality as it is. Let them have the choice of taking the goddamned red pill!

The discussions there reminds me of the old days of Jon Katz. What ever happened to him? Some googling only comes up with old articles by him, and, as expected, his critics. I liked the guy, and I even bought/read his book, Geeks. He even responded to my e-mails. The latest I could find on him was an article (erg, advertisement?) posted on Slashdot in April.
