Cover Your Kid’s Eyes, There’s Sex in Virtual Worlds: NBC News, um, Reports

Ah, nothing like a trip down memory lane: like when the Internet was a cesspool of perversion and danger that we should keep our kids away from; or like Rock & Roll which was a threat to the fabric of society; or like that apple up in the tree - don’t touch it! It’s scary!

NBC News has trotted out the bogeyman again, parading expert psychiatrists and concerned moms to warn of the dangers of unfettered content in virtual worlds like Second Life.

Really, this kind of thing is such a hopeless news filler and feels oh so 2007.

By way of Greg Verdino and CenterNetworks.
