While I came across "Footprints in the Digital Age" by Will Richardson it shows that we should be careful about what they put on the web because what one does doesn't just disappear. The article describes many things like how people are doing community work and how we need to help. He describes in the article how he is scared that his children aren't going to be in Google or not have an impact on society in the digital world. He would not be the only one because people like myself would want they're kids to be heard. I would want my kid to have a say in the world and not be pushed around and be told what to do like a dog. Our digital world is becoming something so sophisticated I don't even want to think how it is going to be in twenty to thirty years from now.

  1. Hey Mike. I agree that the digital world is becoming increasingly important, but personally I still get nervous when I can type my name into google and several articles appear about me. I actually just did this the other day, and was shocked to see how many results came back that related to me. As I'm becoming more involved in the digital world, I get kind of nervous. I don't know if I want everyone in the world to know about me or my life. Personally I find it scary in a way. What about yourself? Are you comfortable with it or does it make you nervous too?
