Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, California, there's
a class devoted solely to the Internet. College teachers encourage their
students to do their research on the net.
Unfortunately, all this new net traffic can present problems. The Internet was designed for use by adult computer experts, not novices and
children. Children, of course, rapidly become computer experts. But
the openness of the Internet, which makes it so useful to all users, can
also be problematic in several situations. Adults worry that children in
the midst of more or less innocent
net surfing may stumble across adult
material not meant for their eyes. And novices can bombard experts
with basic questions (violating Netiquette
Rule 4, Respect other people's time).
