What is your opinion of this website? - mainly regarding suitability for teenagers in the 14- 17 range.

Thanks in advance.

Perfectly suitable. They need to learn about privacy and online safety, but one needs to learn that in this modern day and age anyways.

Nearly nine months later, no problems. Well, other than the fact that I get about zero computer time on weekends between sunrise and 9 PM. If MySpace has an IPO then I'm buying.

The kids having troubles on MySpace.com are also likely to help strangers look for their puppies, to accept free product samples from guys wearing trenchcoats on streetcorners, and to tell unknown phone callers "No, my parents aren't home, just me."

Well, if the Air Force is doing it then it must be a hip happenin' OK thing:
"The Air Force is joining the Internet's largest social networking website, MySpace.com, when it launches its own user profile there this week. When viewing the Air Force profile, users will see a series of five rough-cut clips that will give them a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary things Airmen accomplish every day. They will also have the opportunity to vote on which commercial will kick off the Air Force's new 'Do Something Amazing' advertising campaign. The one with the most votes will air Sept. 18 during the FOX network's TV show, 'Prison Break.' After Sept. 18, Internet users can visit the DoSomethingAmazing.com Website where they can view more than 100 videos of Airmen in action."

And before you zoomies raise your interservice-rivalry hackles, let's take solace in the fact that at least your service never paid $500K to have Spike Lee film a bunch of teen sailors playing their garage-band music on the flight deck...

I don't know what makes a teenager smirk more-- "Do something amazing!!" or "Accelerate your life".

Maybe our slogan should be "Do something amazing--decelerate your life!"
