I think it might be time to retire from the geekzone world! I like the comment that I am old enough and ugly enough to handle these comments. I chose to come into the world of geeks to see if I could understand more about the isues. Rather than be unanimous! Anonymous! I needed to front up and take it on the chin!
Over the last week I was told that charities do not think for themselves by one reporter and then asked by another why new zealand has the highest youth suicide in the oecd. Who said no publicity is bad publicity!
What I do know is that decisions are not made in isolation and that the digital world has a huge effect on the lives of young people.

If nothing else if that is taken note of by both regulators and the commercial environment then its worth pushing a few buttons.
Thanks for all the comments - it has been a learning week

It is a shame seeing you leave. The reality is that when you come online there's a much bigger audience - and believe me our demographics show that most here are older than you think - the same people who wants transparency and accountability.
