David Pogue has an excellent blog entry in the dangers kids face on the Internet. It’s a brief read worth checking out, as many of us will soon be (or are already) confronting some of the issues.

It's so amusing to me that the media seems to think this is new. Granted that I'm something of an early adapter, but I started going online more than TWO DECADES AGO. When I was 15. And promptly received clumsy propositions from so many teenage boys that I changed my handle from "Lora" to the less obviously female "Sunfighter." Then I started playing in this ancient BBS-based ancestor of a MUD, and ended up getting together with the players in real life. But I was, like, smart enough to meet them in a group and in a public place till I knew them better.

If I could figure out coping mechanisms back then, I'm sure today's young teens can. :-)
