The British Government wants to ban porn from the internet.
The move would force ISPs to block all pornographic content unless users had 'opted in' (providing a handy list of people who wish to view pornography) and is said to be motivated by a desire to combat the early sexualization of children. There is no word on how 'porn' is to be defined.

Teenagers find the internet a frustrating experience
A survey in the north east of England finds that teenagers are increasingly being alienated in their online experience because they aren't being given the skillsets to cope with finding or using the information. Seems to be the old story of schools buying computers but the kids not being engaged enough on how to use them (which has been the case since I was stuck in front of an Acorn Archimedes
fifteen years go). Here is a similar article from Australia
which describes how their eductation system is coping with the issue.

to England about free net access. I am shocked that a company in the honorable net industry could think of such a scam! Shocked I say!

Freeserve relaunched today:
Considering that the vast majority of UK internet users have this set as their homepage, what's your opinion on the new-look Freeserve homepage. (it's like MSN - no?)
