Social Networking: CBC report on the new Internet phenom

A quote from early CBC coverage on the Internet likened its rapid growth to that of an embryonic brain. It’s a fascinating report that touches upon many big issues of social networking: behaviour of the anonymous; the ameliorating effect of group environments on anonymous behaviour; posting of “sensitive” information with possible ethical or legal ramifications [here, the leaking of manslaughter trial details]; responsive legislation for controlling Internet use and access to information.

Here follows the report. See an almost youthful-looking Peter Mansbridge! I came across the link in the official Second Life blog while investigating the environment and trying to figure out what I can do in there. This particular blog entry, I, for one, welcome our new avatar overlords is by Torley Linden, Project Manager.
