The idea of internet meetings extends, of course, far beyond scouting. I
teach at a college, and often will create a chat room for all of my students
to discuss and ask questions before an exam, or about a paper, or something

for my troop--except that NONE of my boys have the internet at their homes,
and most of the boys go to a high school where the principal, who is
convinced that the only reason why a teenager would use the internet is for
sex, severely limits their access---they are not even allowed to use hotmail
or yahoo because, and I quote, "you are still getting sex in your e-mails."
