Cyberspace for Children and Young Adults

A visit to cyberspace is like a visit to the collective consciousness of the world. Alice's journey seems tame by comparison. Our hopes, our dreams, our monumental accomplishments, our frailties, and the everyday business of life is all there is to be shared. --Vinton Cerf
