Interesting and thoughtful article at El Reg about some odd attitudes appearing around the government’s new Council for Child Internet Safety.

I need to read up around all this, and actually read the Byron review. Thus far I’ve only dipped into the deluge, but I’ve an unexpected observation already: everything I’ve seen makes the assumption that children are consumers first, with their value as contributors a distant second if it’s considered at all.

This worries me even more than nonsense about premoderating content.
