How old is old enough to handle the internet these days? Is the internet actually more dangerous and repulsive than it was ten years ago, or does it just seem that way because more people are aware of it? I was thinking about how I would introduce it to my kid if I had one.

In all honesty, I'd let them have free reign, but be extremely watchful and tell them to come to you if they see anything they don't understand.

For real, considering how everywhere and everything has an internet presence today - and how much it'll likely increase in the future - I think it's impossible to keep children away from it by the time they know basic tech literacy (e.g. knowing how to turn on a tablet or smartphone). There's also the scope of it. Even something as easy-to-access as Youtube contains years and years worth of content, and there's a lot of insidious stuff masking itself as kid's entertainment that, unless you're constantly watching over your kud's shoulder, you can't be sure they haven't seen, and you can't block every website that you know to have kid-unsafe content, since there's about a dozen more that you don't know about.

Thankfully, I think more elementary schools are putting in basic computer literacy as their curriculum, and I think once more and more schools and kids start learning about it, they'll probably expamd it to include internet literacy as well - stuff like being aware of spam and viruses, keeping away from strangers, and how to find actually kid-friendly websites. All-in-all, I think as long as you give a child a good talking to and make sure they're learning safe navigation, you'll be fine.

I donít really know what a good parenting policy is, but the internet 10 years ago was insanely fucked up. Looking back, Iím pretty shocked at the stuff I regularly saw as a youth.

IMO itís probably worse now not for the typical dangerous stuff, but more because of its ubiquity. Even if you never see awful porn or hate sites, you can get easily sucked into social stuff more than before. I blame my teenage forum addiction for my lasting social anxieties and toxic attitudes.

Yeah, I agree. I was mainly thinking about all the shock sites, learning how to navigate weird strangers on the internet and things like virus protection since those were the main obstacles for me when I was browsing about a decade ago. However I didn't consider social media and its influences over developing minds because it's perhaps the most insidious facet of commonplace internet activities, even for savvy folk.

I was watching the recent Junji Ito anthology series, and I noticed something that bugs me a lot in animation, when the moon looks like this:



Like, that is not a shape that results from having a light illuminating half a sphere. You can write down a fucking equation to tell you the shape that it should be, put that in a graphing calculator, and make it happen. People got no excuses.

At the absolute minimum, the tips of the crescent should be halfway around the circle, not 3/4 or whatever the fuck is going on there.

I don't know why everyone keeps using social media for political discussion. It's not good for that. No political discussion, right or left leaning, on any social media platform has ever had any worth or consequence. It's just people trying to show off how smart they are for cool points and then the people who disagree with them being smarmy and shitty about it and then the original poster gets smarmy and shitty in return.

Just use social media for what it's meant for. Just look at pictures of your friends having fun, or read their jokes or opinions on movies. Fuck's sake.
