From a toddler’s first steps to the steps we need to take to ensure the online safety and security of our kids, theÂ Cast of Dads sound a bit more serious this week as we address our typically diverse topics. Â Our serious tone was set perhaps by the breaking news as we recorded of the student suicide at Rutgers, which raised a number of online security and privacy concerns and sadly highlighted the very different world our kids are growing up in, where virtually anything and everything we do has the potential to be broadcast and amplified by the Internet. Â Of course one topic is never enough for this group of gabbers and we go on to address everything from education to ranting on the so-called “Year of the Dad” in the Blogosphere…
The topics discussed in this episode include:
- Bradâ€™s youngest takes his first steps
- Are we expected to capture every special moment?
- Rutgers Student Suicide due to a webcam
- Technology amplifies hate
- Emily Explains It
- How much to share of our kids online?
