Err ... How do you prove your a kid ?

About: Scobleizer - Microsoft Geek Blogger

Some of the strategies to prove your an adult on the Internet make sense.  For example kids don't have credit cards.  But how do you prove your a kid?  I guess you could have a proven adult sign you up.  Err ...then that very adult cannot come into the space ... .  So the space is supposed to be a safe place where predators can't get at your children .... Not!   Where do they get these unenforceable rules?

I suspect biometrics could do the job. Face recognition is substantially different for children & adults. Anyway, the internet is a wild frontier. If you don't want your children in it unsupervised - lock the computer physically. Simple enough, eh?

Sounds simple, but doesn't solve problem where you want you child to have access to the Internet.  This idea of having child only areas of the internet to protect children from preditors is a really dumb idea ... because, Daa, a preditor will just lie and say they are a child.  Even the new MS infocard identity system will probably not solve this problem.

Well a combo of biometrics could work. On the other hand, there is nothing that is 100% secure with the possible condition of death. Unfortunately, though it would be hard to work that into the equation.
