Asimov’s three laws? Ash? Tells you all you need to know, really. It is likely not the medium to fear, or to protect and be protected from, but the application of it by people ‘protecting’ their interests, status, beliefs and positions. If we are to protect children from the vicissitudes of the web we must expose the very nature of secrets, individuals’ and groups’ use of information to maintain their power, and societies’ reliance on the unelaborated, and use education and information as liberation and liberty. If there is a fullest possible use for a conscious entity, then perhaps we should consider how to remove inequality and privilege rather than yet again blame the problems of youths on the problem of youth.
