When computer security expert Mary Anne Blake asked the four dozen seniors how many used the Internet, most of their hands went up. Most said they used e-mail, several used eBay, and one man was an avid reader of his son's blog. That's why they were attending the Internet safety seminar at the Senior Center in Haltom City, Texas. It's part of a 12-city tour sponsored by Microsoft, the Geek Squad, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
