This Cyber Cafe in Scottsburg, Indiana has some user-friendly rules for its visitors:
With rules like this, I imagine that the kids are lining up for the Cyber Cafe, especially the late bus riders. Are late bus riders more prone to trouble-making?
I like the no "downloading, email, chatroom, or blogs" allowed rule. What the hell else is there to do on the internet? Isn't every page viewed "downloaded" from some other computer?
One wonders how the anarchy of the internet can be contained by the statism that is endemic to the government school system. My guess is that it can't.
When I was a kid, we had all kinds of ways to get around the internet filters. For example, a student could use the authorized IE browser to download one like Netscape or Firefox that can get around the filters.Post a Comment
These sorts of restrictions can be good at teaching children at an early age how to circumvent the government control.
