There was a very interesting article on the front page of the Dallas Morning News yesterday. School kids have found a way to bypass Internet filters in order to surf sites that are supposed to be off-limits. These kids might not know the capital of Alabama, but by golly they are Web savvy enough to work their way around these feeble so-called obstacles.
According to the article (though I have my doubts), only a handful of these mostly high school students are using their wiles to access sites such as hotwetducks.com or grandmasgonewilder.net. Mostly, they want to be able to send e-mail, play games, and chat on MySpace.com.I say, if they're going to surf prohibited sites, why not surf Learn Me Good? Welcome, all you high-tech slackers! Sure, your grades are going to take a hit since you're too busy playing Warcraft online to know the Treaty of Paris from the MPEG of Paris Hilton. But look on the bright side, you make the top half of the class possible.
