On a related note, I would be interested to see an equivalency of sorts in regards not to age specifically, but to psychological and sociological development of persons between their online and offline selves. Establish stages respective of both and compare them against different mediums of connectedness. This is more of a CMC related issue I suppose.

Thomas Jones

One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community.
