Everyone's favorite paranoid, Winn Schwartau, has just released a new book authored with the assistance of Jennifer Granick, a lawyer who represents hackers. Granick has recently moved to Stanford Law School where she heads up the Center for Internet and Society. The book, Internet & Computer Ethics for Kids, is written for the technologically unsophisticated audience and it's conceived as a book that parents and teachers can use to raise issues of privacy, security, ethics and responsible behavior when using computers and surfing the Web.

As some of you know, I work for Winn, and I've subscribed to a few lists for teachers, some of them Computer Science teachers. Oiy! There are, from an admittedly unrepresentative sample, too many computer science teachers who don't have a clue. Scary!

Anyway, you can read the first few chapters at:
