Joe, thanks for sharing about the DFS. I had not heard of it before and want to attend one! I don’t live too far from Philadelphia.

I believe family blogging is fun, educational, and does have a way of getting the whole family interacting with each other in a whole new way. This summer my kids and I tried out a website called Cubert’s Cube. I am very impressed with what Cubert’s Cube offers in the way of security settings. Your metaphor which compares guiding your children’s computer use to that of teaching them to cross a street safely is excellent. The Internet is a vast highway and you can not be too safe. I am glad I was able to set privacy settings on their Cubert’s Cube accounts and protect their identities.

On Cubert’s Cube, my kids are able to draw pictures and upload graphics to go along with their writing. They can also send messages to each other, and since it is Wiki based, they can write a story together at the same time. It’s definitely another site to check out!
