I’ve been a downright delinquent blogger for the past multiple weeks. My apologies to the small but loyal cadre of readers. I’ve been distracted with a few things, including my day job… 😉
I’ve also been distracted with launching the Internet Safety Podcast. It’s been a labor of love and quite a bit of fun so far. My co-host is Joe Brockbank, who was one of my classmates in the Computer Science Department at BYU in the late 1980’s.
Why are we doing this? We want to help parents and families to understand how to maximize the amazing benefits of technology while minimizing the downsides.
We believe the Internet and technology are here to stay. We also believe that parents must become educated. Pulling the plug at home isn’t going to cut it. Your kids are going to be exposed to a variety of technologies, and we have to be in a position as parents to help guide them and keep them safe.
I know I’ve written about some interesting, educational, and just plain silly things over the past year, but this one is a bit more serious and important.
I encourage you to go check it out. If you find it valuable, please let your friends and family members know.
If you have questions you’d like us to address on the podcast, feel free to leave a message on the podcast, or email me directly.
