Mayhem, Mischief and Malice: The World Wild Web

From UniversityAffairs in Canada comes this technology tale of mayhem, menace, mischief and malice: The Wild Web. There’s even a really scary picture to go with the now fairly familiar story of social networking sites and web 2.0 users run amok.

It’s important to think about these things because they are not going away. The article is about the impact and response at the university level but of course the same issues apply in schools and wherever computers and internet access are available.I.e pretty much everywhere.

If this is something that interests or concerns you then join us on Monday November 3rd for an Evening with John Palfrey. He is the co-author of the recently published Born Digital that looks at the world of the digital generation and the social, professional and emotional impact of growing up digital.

The question posed by the article is: “Should universities control behaviour on line?”

What do you think?
