Are you a parent of the new age children (those who can configure IE to use a HTTP proxy @ the age of 6 to bypass your employer’s firewall so that he/she can play games in office)? Consider glancing through this encyclopedia (you have to learn first), then go through some of this with your child. This will allow the kid to understand some of the terms he will com across in the future – and will be able to make a better decision for him/herself.
