Henry Jenkins posted a two-part interview with Anne Collier on his blog.

Collier is the co-author (with Larry Magid) of MySpace Unraveled. She is an advocate for teen use of social networking and for educating teens (and their families) about social networking – how it works, why it’s important in teen lives, etc.
The interview is worth reading for many reasons which include:

  • The opportunity to better understand why parents and other adults fear social networking so strongly
  • The opportunity to get ideas on how to help parents better understand the positive and negative aspects of web 2.0
  • The opportunity to find out how to articulate for legislators (and other adults) the reasons why legislation like DOPA Jr. won’t work.

Take time to read the two-part interview. It will certainly help prepare you for the educating you have ahead of you when it comes to parents, legislators, and social networking.
