Online Predators and Their Victims – Annotated
Cool summary of an article by Liz B. Davis — Liz took the article and extracted the most valuable bits to her using google Docs. This methodology is fascinating, but even moreso the fact we may all begin doing this together with Diigo.

Pioneering research shows ‘Google Generation’ is a myth – Annotated
Wow — this longitudinal study shows that all generations show “google generation” traits with over 65 year olds spending 4 more hours a week online than some of the younger ages.
It argues that libraries must adapt to the digital mindset AND that young people are lacking in information skills!
This is an important study for all educators, business leaders, AND students on the Horizon project. Another reason to remind ourselves that we base practice on RESEARCH not STEREOTYPES!

YouTube – 8 Teens Charged With Beating 16 y/o Girl (Phil Rants)
**WARNING – EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE LINKED VIDEO**
This is an example of a very successful youtube show that many teens are watching and viewing. WARNING – there is explicit language here, however, I find this “question of the day” on Wendesday, the 606,954 views and the 20 video responses and 777,000 teen responses interesting.
Again, this is NOT a video to show your classes, however it IS a video to understand how teens are talking about and trying to make sense of the world. Step back and look at what is happening… and notice, who is not included in the equation!
Also, I do not advocate what this guy suggests doing! I do advocate holding people accountable for what they've done and that needs to happen in this case. The blame should go squarely on the kids that did it, for when it doesn't, people know they can get away with anything and not be held responsible. It would set a dangerous precedent.

Concur 100% about holding these teens responsible (and trying them as adults to boot). As a judge once said, it may be too late to rehabilitate you, but I can at least send a signal to all others thinking of doing this!
However, I worry that this very small minority may have major impact on attempts to open up access to the internet in schools. I foresee the fear mongers using this as leverage that the internet is evil (as one of the parents said).
