If you're Glenn Quagmire, don't read this. All others, continue!
An article with at least superficial credibility (they admit kids search for porn, etc.) about what kids, tweens and teens search for online. Randomness includes Megan Fox, Walmart, Youtube and Naked Girls. (And Craigslist. What the hell do kids need on Craigslist?)

kids.us ready to go.
Hidden amongst the seemingly endless barrage of SOBig virii this morning was an interesting email from that ResourceShelf Guy
on the new kids Domain
Being billed as "an Internet domain that parents and children can trust for educational and appropriate online fun
" kids.us Launches On September 4, 2003. You can read the Overview of kids.us Policies and Procedures
, or Register A Name

Interestingly they Say
a company called cyveillance
will be "monitoring and reviewing" content for the domains.
The domain names will Look
a little funny, but maybe Someone
should snag www.metafilter.kids.us, you know, for the kids. They don't seem cheap, as "Registrants will be charged a combined registration fee and a non-refundable application fee for five-year registration.

Who do you root for when everyone's a villain?
It turns out that everyone
involved in the "Internet Twins
" fiasco is scum. Sure as hell the biological mother is (she gave the babies up twice
and now wants them back; I wouldn't trust her to care for my cat); the woman from the UK
is, and now the man in the US
is. A plague on all their houses.
Now the biological father, Aaron Wecker
, has begun proceedings to gain custody of the babies. I hope he isn't as despicable as everyone else involved. Let's hope this circus doesn't follow the girls around for the rest of their lives. If there's any sort of lesson in this, I wish someone would tell me what it is.

Private school ejects Sailor Moon fan
accessing an "adult" Sailor Moon site. The kid didn't know what the site was ahead of time, the site slipped through the school's content filters, and the boy "immediately logged off after less than a minute on the Web site". I don't know if this qualifies as a zero tolerance
issue, but it's definitely an overraction, not to mention an ugly failure of blocking software
