Keeping kids online safe - http://scobleizer.com/2009...
I am glad that the movement is swinging away from just only trying to prevent our children from experiencing the dark side of the internet. We need to place reasonable safeguards as well as opening the lines of communication between parents and children. I work in a school and see every day how hard many parents find it to have uncomfortable discussions with their teenagers. I would love to see a resource that helps encourage and facilitate a positive and open communication between parents and their kids. - Phillip Miller
this is where Glubble will help you. We provide parents the tools to support their children discover the web and social networking. Instead of locking children or the computer down, or trying to be the experts for parents, we let parents take the responsibility and build a safe and fun web for their children. This way parents can teach their children to be good citizens in the online... more... - Alexander van Elsas
Kids are part of the problem themselves. At my school lots of trouble begins online at social media sites and can even end in fighting. Othertimes it's the other way round. A child is bullied at school and then bullied online too. - Donald Townsend from twhirl
Our kids are only allowed to use the computer in the public areas of our house (ie. not their rooms). I am not so naive to think this is the only solution, so I have had discussions with my older kids (11 & 8) about appropriate use, sites, etc. As far as them posting information online, I told them to think about this: If you wouldn't stand up in the middle of your school lunch room and share the same information with everyone, it's probably not a good idea to put it online. - Dave Gambrill
Dave, that's a good criteria. I'd extend it to say... If you wouldn't stand up in the middle of your school lunch room and share the same information with everyone and allow it to be posted on the school wall forever, it's probably not a good idea to put it online. - Tinfoil 2.0
Avynn's computer is in a common room, right where I can see him from my office. We have no censorship of any kind on his computer. So far the worst thing he watches is machinima based around Half Life 2 and sometimes Monty Python. He's 12 now, so we'll probably need to have a talk about porn sometime before too long. He doesn't have any friends yet who even know what email or IM is. That'll change in Middle School. - iTad
Alexander, I'll have to test that out in anticipation. I haven't given up waiting on my little miracles. :) Nice to be prepared though. Thanks for sharing! - Melanie Reed
@Tad - Watching Monty Python already, eh? Sounds like your kid'll be okay. :) - Steve Lynch from twhirl
I agree that education is the best form of prevention -- kids are smart, make sure they know how you feel (and why). - Steve Lynch from twhirl
Locking computers and the web down too much gives kids a reason to want to break free. It is so much better to give them a cool experience and teach them about their behavior on the web at the same time. My ultimate goal is for a child to be able to say that his Internet is way more cooler than mom's or dad's Internet. And parents need to be educated and get involved as well. They can't just rely on tools but should be actively involved. They want to, but often do not know how - Alexander van Elsas
As much as you try, you cannot "protect" your kids online, except by educating them. The weakest links are their friends. I've seen first hand how friends will introduce new people into a network that no one in the existing network knows. Kids don't realize that these new people are "strangers" because they assume "a friend of a friend" is safe. That's one thing I've had to teach my kids -- that friends of friends are strangers unless you know them in the "real world." - Dominic Jones
And the cc: line in emails is the most common way strangers get into your kids' networks. - Dominic Jones
Sorry to hog this, but if I can help one person it's worth it. Teach your kids never to share their passwords with their friends. They often do this for things like neopets and webkinz when they're going to be offline for a while and want a friend to take care of their "pets" or keep in good standing on Club Penguin or something. Their passwords often are the same for a variety of sites, including web mail. - Dominic Jones
I grew up before the age of social media and there was lots of bullying, malicious gossip and harassment, not to mention the creepy guy who stood on the corner in a raincoat. (of course, bringing guns to school wasn't unusual then, you just had to keep them on the gun rack) The Web is just the latest tool for bullies and pervs. - Robert Hafer
@ Robert Hafer Today, the creepy guy in a raincoat is a sweet-looking 10-year-old girl who is popular with everyone and has all the latest gadgets but absent parents. - Dominic Jones

Thinking about buying a Flip Mino HD
I should do a show comparing my Flip Mino HD to my Creative Vado and my Kodak Zi6. I like all three for different reasons. - Robert Scoble
Robert: does one stand out for just pure quality of the video? - Ken Sheppardson
I really want one. I need some disposable income. - Martha
Just bought the Kodak Zi6 as a gift for father-in-law. The price and HD combined with the style made it a winner over the Flip for me which I find to be pretty ugly. - Mark H
I love it when these kinds of tweets get Scobleized. Crowd-sourcing my product research! : ) - Mike Doeff
Ken: the Creative has the best video, but doesn't work with the Mac's iMovie so you have to convert videos there first. That's a PITA, but doable. Mark: the Kodak is the ugliest and biggest one. I like the Mino for fitting in my pocket the best. - Robert Scoble
Lindsey, I haven't decided on a design yet. In fact, now I'm also considering the Kodah Zi6 and the Creative Vado. - Mike Doeff
I take mine everywhere, since it fits nicely in my pocket. The videos you get probably won't impress any engineers, but you have a camera when you need it. - Tom Landini
Exactly, Lindsey. It is so very very hard to be fiscally responsible. - Martha
There is a slick video out there someplace where someone taped/rubberbanded a mino to another pocket HD cam to show their quality side by side. Might be good to watch. But damn I cannot find the video. - Patrick Allmond
Patrick Chris Pirillo did that. Let me find the URL. - Robert Scoble
I love my mino HD - Web Journeys from twhirl
Lindsey: I just wish the Creative worked with the mac. It sucks that it doesn't. - Robert Scoble
Robert, it looks like the Vado supports Mac (http://us.creative.com/product...) What kind of problems did you run into on the Mac? - Mike Doeff
I've got the Mino HD and works fine for what I need it for. - Dave Gambrill
Mike: the Creative Vado HD files do not work in iMovie. You have to convert them to MOV format first. - Robert Scoble
Great idea. I keep mine with me wherever I go. I don't think there has ever been an easier way to record video. - Patrick Allmond
I would buy a creative Vado HD Mike. Much much better quality - TheHenry
I was just thinking of buying one too! - Peter

If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist." - Dave Gambrill from Bookmarklet
