Had a phone call with Jon Udell today (more on smart things he got me to think about later), but just wanted to record one important point for thought:

Where on the web are your web-illiterate instincts wrong?

For example, your instincts of “don’t let kids talk to strangers without you” is probably (most parents would say) right both on and off the web.  But some of your instincts around digital copying are wrong.

If we could identify which instincts are wrong and where, that may be the exact set of skills that are necessary beyond just the “how do I make” skills.  (And, in a lot of ways, the skills that will exist beyond the lifetime any given technology.)
