in the news ...
a smart, non-hysterical article about facebook in today's seattle p-i. title: "students misbehaving could pay price for posting photos online." author: christine frey.
the article covers the recent trend for colleges and universities, including the university of washington, to use facebook to bust students for various acts. it also features some sensible words from my student and friend jerome mccuin. yours truly is also featured at the end of the article.
equally important, i was also part of an excellent article in silver chips, the outstanding and award-winning newspaper of montgomery blair high school in silver spring, maryland! title: "SIM-ply obsessed: blazers spend hours creating fantasy lives in popular computer game." author: katy lafen. i had no idea high school newspapers could be this good.
(and a quick shout out to my friend and colleague, alice marwick, who, in this article, provides the media with sensible ideas and observations about online identities.)
