Meredith-- thanks for your thoughtful remarks (which I upvoted). For me, in the statement, "a time and space for relatively consequence-free experimentation", the key word is relatively. I would never argue that life should be entirely consequence-free, but that there should be a little more mercy shown to young people because of their relative lack of experience and wisdom. I would never argue that they should be freed from the immediate consequences of their actions, but I am concerned about the effect of them reliving the error repeatedly,through the magic of technology, on their ability to begin afresh.
