Link: Wired News A MySpace Cheat Sheet for Parents:. Kevin Poulson must have a chronic illness necessitating medical marijuana. This is really the only explanation for this I think really anyone who can speak and works at Berkeley and is not on the Seti@home project has some form of chronic illness. I like this quote:
UC Berkeley researcher Danah Boyd says it's a bad idea. "Don't go on and engage in surveillance. That makes things really hard for kids to engage with you as a parent." Instead, Boyd recommends parents talk with their youngsters, and ask their teens to show them their profile, if they have one.
This is the sort of parenting that makes for legal bills. I Parent from the Guantanamo Bay school. My children are required to wear orange jumpsuits and have loud music blasted in their rooms at all times - no wait I have some things re-arranged... No I do not let them blast loud music so they will not have to wear orange jumpsuits - anyway I parent from the lowest common denominator - I see my children out of the court system or drug rehab and I am proud. In order to do that I need information - so I go through the room monitor any correspondence, key loggers are good for this I look at the phone logs a couple of times a week and call the numbers I do not have in my contacts and Mom does not remember who they are. Seems a bit much but then her friends do not seem to mind neither does she because I am helpful and funny and she knows that I love her.. (and want her to be very wealthy so she can "lend" us money when her mother and I are retired....)
