I love the photo stories, but there doesn't seem to be a way to share via link - I want to send some to my folks who are not (yet) Google+ savvy.

Is it possible and am I just missing it?

Great book launch/discussion last night with +danah boyd, Dalton Conley, and Eric Klinenberg at the Institute for Public Knowledge.

Big themes:

- Need to be mindful of adult hypocrisy - i.e. years of "it's dangerous outside" and "don't talk to strangers" leading to panic that kids don't go outside or talk to strangers. 
- Little "p" policy (on-the-ground tactics and responses to youth social media activity) more successful than big "P" policy (one-size-fits-all solutions). 
- Kids don't rely on technology to provide privacy, but develop content that is obscure/targeted so that even when privacy settings change, meaning remains limited. 
- The kids are all right.

Anyone interested in young people and technology should pick up the book!

Aleksey Kasavin originally shared:
 
Seen by the High Line: a portable turnstile gate to enter a construction site.

Seems a bit dystopian to me, not to mention the fact that the High Line will soon be surrounded by highrise buildings that hide it from view (and obscure the view from it).
