Steven Johnson's Open Letter to Senator Clinton
This post is mostly a place-holder and reminder to myself to read Steven Everything Bad Is Good For You Johnson's latest opinion piece in today's LA Times. From scanning it, here's the jist: Senator Hillary Clinton wants to study the effects of video games on children, and Johnson would like her to be more clear about what those effects will be compared to -- reading? card games? shooting dirty pool?
I am so tired of the pathologizing of teen interests & behaviors, and I am so glad to see opinion pieces like this one. Happy weekend, all.
