Is it time to take another look at how we use the internet?
David Cameron is on a crusade against the dark side of the internet. He won’t rest until every single explicit image has been taken offline. Whilst such a mission is clearly well-intentioned it is also incredibly naïve, not to mention slightly arrogant. Cameron’s belief that anyone, Google and Microsoft included, can tame the World Wide Web enforces the idea that the government are spectacularly out of touch whilst simultaneously fuelling the stereotype that silver surfers are almost all completely oblivious to the power of modern technology. Yet, scrape a little under the surface of Cameron’s admirable yet foolish declaration and you’ll unearth an important question – does anyone know how to use the internet?
