MySpace and legislation

kestrell linked to an interview of Henry Jenkins and danah boyd about MySpace and the "Deleting Online Predators Act".

On the one hand, I can see the argument that children on the internet should be closely supervised by an adult. On the other hand, I don't like internet filters in general and it sounds like these in particular are being very broadly drafted.

I think the most intriguing question is one brought up by danah: "Understanding why moral panics emerge when youth socialize is central to my research."

Moral panics emerge when youth do anything. It's 'cause they're so expensive. If we were ferns, this wouldn't be a problem.
