3 out of 5 teenagers in generate internet content
The Times of India
[ Thursday, November 03, 2005 10:31:13 pmAP ]

CHICAGO: Nearly three in five school-age teens with Internet access  
in the US have created online content, including webpages with  
artwork, photos and stories  and about a fifth have their own blogs,  
which also allow friends and other readers to create feedback postings.

Those are some of the findings from a survey of 12- to 17-year-olds  
conducted by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. The survey  
also found that older school-age girls with online access were most  
likely to keep a blog. About a quarter of girls, ages 15 to 17, did  
so, compared with 15 percent of boys in that age group.

Fab Labs Unshackle Imaginations
By MARK JEWELL, AP Business Writer1 hour, 24 minutes ago

When Makeda Stephenson compared flight simulator games sold in  
computer stores and didn't find anything she liked, she didn't stop  
there.

The 13-year-old used a set of computer-controlled manufacturing tools  
at a community center to make her own simulator  one that lets her  
"fly" an airplane of her design over an alien planet born of her  
imagination.
