David Pogue writes about the disappearance of online etiquette as the Read/Write Web expands our social interactions online. It’s not a pretty picture. He ends with:
Maybe as the Internet becomes as predominant as air, somebody will realize that online behavior isn’t just an afterthought. Maybe, along with HTML and how to gauge a Web site’s credibility, schools and colleges will one day realize that there’s something else to teach about the Internet: Civility 101.
(Read the 250+ pretty civil comments, too…)
Hmmm…whadda ya think? Is it the job of schools to clean up this mess? Be nice…
(Thanks to Dean Matson for the pointer.)
