Introduction

Hi there this is my Protopage where I have stored links and reminders about the various forms of social software available on the web these days. This software is revolutionising the way we conceive of the web and our ability to create, store, manage and publish content on it.

Cautionary tales

Check out the tale of Intrepid teacher in the USA - forced to resign because of something he'd written on his personal blog that a member of his school community took objection to.

Or Al Upton's Mini Legends blog for Australia which was closed down by the State because someone thought he'd over-stepped the mark in terms of the possibility that some of his students may  be recognised from photos posted on the blog.
