Submission + - Do digital jails stop kids from learning security? (blogspot.com)

Phat_Tony writes: The security blogger who broke the He Kexin age story has a well-written piece up on the affect of technical and legal technical safeguards on modifying and exploring our digital devices. From the article: "As the nation watches, we're pondering the consequences of transforming computing devices from machines that we control into machines which exert control over us. As we give away our freedom to tinker, we give away the chance to raise a generation which will lead the information age."
