don't blame the messenger

this is a promotional clip from a new ABC/tripleJ program called the Hack Halfhour, you can download a vodcast of the first show here ... i think whilst it may not answer all the questions does ask the right questions ...what is the implication of "sharing" personal stuff about our lives on-line is a complex issue and yes there are dangers, but there is so much to gain ...instead of hysteria about youtube being responsible for the finish school shooting (btw it wasn't youtube it was the gunman that killed!) we urgently need more open discussion about what powerful tools social network gives us today ... tools that can be used to solved the many problems that face our society today
