The Internet is the greatest educational tool since the advent of books, but it is also a sinister playground for prowling predators searching for young prey. It is particularly unnerving to think that these predators can enter a living room undeterred by locks or alarms, and unseen by parents or the family dog. "The anonymity of the Internet plays a very significant role in enabling child molesters to cruise the Web for potential victims without much fear of being caught," says Karl Garrison, CTO of the consulting group Intelligent Fusion.

A service I really like is BeSafe Online. It is excellent in the way it works, the features available and the cost. Just $50.00 a year gets you protection for your kids from porn, chatting and things of that nature. Add another $10.00 for virus protection.

Is native advertising good for journalism?
Yes -- It's a reasonable source of additional revenue for media outlets to support their traditional editorial efforts.
Yes -- Paid-for articles can contain useful information, but readers might bypass them if they look too much like ads.
Maybe -- But only if it's clearly labeled as paid-for content.
No -- I don't trust any information from media outlets that cloak paid-for content as objective journalism.
No -- Native advertising is confusing and devious, and it threatens the fabric of traditional journalism.
I Don't Know -- I don't understand what native advertising is.
