One Laptop Per Child program bested by Porn

The One Laptop Per Child program is going to install content filters on their laptops because the urchins given the computers are using them to surf the Internet for all its salacious material.

Of course, this shouldn't be a surprise. It strikes me as perfectly normal information-seeking behavior of pre-teen boys.

But the content filters are a pretty poor solution, they both under-block bad sites and over-block good sites. It will take the kids about thirty minutes to find work-arounds to the filters is my guess.
