I'm not sure what to think of these new 'safe' social networking services. Like Whyville, "an online virtual world that immerses children in a video game-like experience where they must manage money, make sure they eat properly." OK, nice. But if they're so good, do they need legislation pushing people their way? And how comfortable should we be about an environment that pushes online interactions in a certain (political?) direction.
